ACCESS was invited by AfDB to participate in the ‘Evaluation of the Bank’s engagement with Civil Society’ at their Nairobi office. The evaluation was aimed at assessing the kind of engagement, the nature of civil society actors, the processes, weaknesses and strengths, and results achieved, to generate lessons and actionable recommendations. ACESS provided views on behalf of its members.
ACCESS in collaboration with Hivos held a CSO engagement workshop in Ghana with the rationale of understanding how CSOs are using the civic space to represent the views of people without access to energy.
We’d like to extend a heartfelt welcome to the new members who have joined the ACCESS Coalition. These are:
Smiling Through Light (Sierra Leone), Nepal Energy Foundation (Nepal), Solar Aid (UK), Rainforest Alliance (Kenya), Sustainable Energy Forum (Kenya), Ghana Alliance of Clean Cookstoves (Ghana).
