ECOWAS/GBEP Workshop on the Piloting of GBEP Sustainability Indicators

11/07/2013

In the ECOWAS region, biomass has become a predominant source of domestic energy, most of which is unsustainably harvested and utilized. Traditional biomass (firewood and charcoal) represents the bulk of the final energy consumption, reaching up to 70-85% in some of the countries, which is negatively impacting on the environment, economy as well as on the lives of the people. Against this background, the GBEP, ECOWAS and the Government of Ghana, supported by the Government of the Netherlands conducted a pilot study on the applicability of GBEP Sustainability Indicators (SI) in Ghana, in 2012.

In line with this, the ECOWAS/GBEP workshop on the piloting of GBEP Sustainability Indicators will be held in Praia (Cape Verde), on the 7-8 November 2013. The aim is to share and disseminate the results of the Pilot Study conducted in Ghana with the other ECOWAS member states, and as well, raise awareness on the GBEP’s activities in the region.

Access to Sustainable Energy for All with Gas

11/04/2013

The International Gas Union and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) in partnership with the ECOWAS Commission, ECREEE and Petroci, are jointly organizing a two-day seminar on Access to Sustainable Energy for All with Gas, in Côte d’Ivoire from the 4 to 5 of November 2013. The aim of the training is to provide a unique opportunity to share first-hand experiences of the options gas offers in the context of the economic development in the region.

Vast reserves of natural gas have been discovered in Sub-Sahara Africa, but only limited volumes are being utilized domestically. The potential for gas contributing to energy access Africa is huge, both in the producing countries and for other countries in the region. Moreover, there are important cross-links and complementarities regarding the use of renewable energy and energy efficiency.

Under the established umbrella of the United Nations Sustainable Energy for All Initiative (SE4All), the training will seek to mobilize support for definitive actions leading to universal access to modern, affordable and reliable energy services across the ECOWAS region.
