An intervention by Henri Waisman in a workshop with researchers and practitioners convened by Ferdi and CLUB-ER within the framework of the Initiative for Development and Global Governance (IDGM). Henri Waisman intervenes more specifically during session 5 of the event ("Developing a lean data approach to facilitate the collaborative aspect of mapping the impacts of decentralization"), whose programme for the second day is entitled "Impact assessment, a challenge for all and a key to the future of decentralised electrification projects and SDGs".
Presentation of the event
FERDI & CLUB-ER joined forces to structure an advocacy for a better evaluation of the impact of decentralised electrification projects in Africa. We are convinced that progress in this area would be extremely useful for project promoters and donors, allowing for a better identification of good practices. In addition, they would contribute to accelerating the faster achievement of sustainable development objectives.
To this end, they are jointly organising a workshop to share best practices in impact assessment of decentralised electrification projects.
This workshop brings together rural electrification agencies, development aid agencies, project promoters and researchers, with two objectives:
- share their practices in impact assessment of decentralised electrification projects;
- Identify the most promising ways to collaboratively produce or improve the impact assessment of these projects in order to highlight and share these best practices with all stakeholders.
