Swallowed by the Sea…Where coastal infrastructure and jobs meet climate change

I was recently in West Africa to witness the effects of coastal erosion. To understand what’s going on, we took a three-country road trip, traveling from Benin’s capital Cotonou, along the coast to Lomé in Togo and then to Keta and Accra in Ghana. These three countries, among the hardest hit by coastal erosion, offer a snapshot of what is happening along the rest of the coast, from Mauritania, via Senegal to Nigeria.

eC2: Zambia – Off-grid site identification and prioritization

Deadline: 30-Oct-2017 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.)

Objective: The proposed activity seeks to first develop new datasets that will enable the identification and prioritization of potential off-grid sites, and faster and more accurate market analysis for public and private stakeholders operating in Zambia. Datasets should include, for example, household locations and indicators on ability to pay, population density and proximity to the national grid, potential for productive uses of electricity and up-to-date data on national electricity grid transmission and distribution line locations. It is expected that these datasets then be used to narrow down geographic areas and priority villages that could be interesting markets for off-grid energy services.
