About ACCESS Coalition

The ACCESS Coalition consists of a range of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs), both national and international. We aim to strengthen the efforts of CSOs working to deliver universal energy access. We advocate at national and regional levels for transparent and inclusive multi-stakeholder participation at all stages of energy processes. We work with donors and investors to build their understanding of the energy needs of poor groups. We support the capacity building of civil society actors and relevant stakeholders, while also sharing best practice across our networks.

To improve livelihoods, we need sustainable affordable energy. Over 595m people in Africa today lack electricity.

World Bank must ensure new Africa energy strategy is inclusive and pro-poor. The Bank’s new Africa energy strategy offers it an important chance to mainstream achieving SDG 7 into its energy lending on the continent, through consultation with African civil society.
