Linking electricity access and development outcomes in Africa: a framework for action

This paper proposes a framework that energy and development sector actors, specifically, African governments, the donor community, private sector, and civil society can rally around to collectively shape a linked energy and development agenda to facilitate the attainment of the SDGs. A supportive ecosystem for a linked agenda will require global ambition and engagement, evidence building on local levels, policy and institutional alignment on national levels, and the restructuring of development finance.
