SEAF-K is brought around a common belief that once sustainable energy solutions are provided with a joint thrust through sufficient policy, financial, technological and institutional support frameworks, Kenya can secure a sustainable pathway towards access to modern energy services for all.
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.
