ACCESS and the One for All Campaign – Webinar Monday 6th March 1400 GMT

One for All is an independent, global campaign that seeks to mobilize new forms of capital and new investors to invest in energy access. One for All will dramatically diversify and increase funding for energy access – and bring clean affordable energy to remote rural places, for cooking, lighting, clinics, and schools and businesses. We will support communities to build local capacities. We will direct and scale investments to solve a global problem at the local level.

View the recording of the webinar.

One for All is a unique partnership of foundations, NGO’s, faith communities, and other mission-driven institutions.   Over the past 6 months, consultations have been held in New York Marrakesh, Morrocco and India about One for All and how this vision can be realized.
