Participants at the national study restitution workshop

Workshop objectives

Organized by GWI and chaired by the Ministry of Energy and Hydraulics (MEH), this national workshop was part of the restitution of the study on setting up financial mechanisms related to the sale of hydroelectricity to support sustainable local development. The purpose of this study is to initiate the elaboration of a national strategy in this area. 

The workshop had the following objectives: 

- That the participants be informed of and take ownership of the content of the analysis and the results of the study's draft report;

- That participants' feedback be shared so that the MEH can finalise and sign off the study report;

- That recommendations be made for the follow-up of the study results.
