2014-09/ Renewable energies increasingly receive their well-deserved attention in Subsaharan Africa. At the recent New York Climate Change Summit the EC has signed a two-billion-Euro allocation in grants for renewable energies support in Africa, to be disbursed by 2020. The initiative is part of a 3.3 billion Euro proposition to back the EU's goal of providing access to sustainable energies for up to 500 million people, by 2030.

ECO Consult has advised a series of countries in the last two decades, on their ways to initiate or adjust woodfuel policies combined with promoting sustainable wood supplies and testing participatory land use management schemes. "The EU initiative is a welcome move to put more of the available expertise into practice", says ECO manager Dr. Steve Sepp.
