The program is built on co-operation with and capacity strengthening of national CSOs to effectively advocate in favour of green and inclusive policies. The objective of the five-year program is to help transition the energy systems in East Africa to one that is green and inclusive and which meets the energy needs of men and women for their daily activities, livelihoods, creates economic opportunities and growth whilst mitigating climate change.
