SESA Webinar – Enhancing adoption of waste-to-energy solutions for clean cooking in Africa

June 21, 2023

Free

According to the Tracking SDG7: The Energy Progress Report 2023, developed jointly by International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), International Energy Agency (IEA), World Bank, United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD), and World Health Organization (WHO), highlights that in 2021, more than 600 million people lacked access to clean cooking fuels and technologies in the Sub-Saharan African countries. Furthermore, under the Paris Climate Agreement, access to clean cooking fuels and technologies is integral for making affordable energy available to the people. This shall also be a cost-effective measure to tackle climate change.

Thus, considering these scenarios, it becomes necessary to take desired actions to improve the livelihood and well-being of the people as well as create sustainable business opportunities. In this webinar, the speakers are representatives from diverse domains such as technology/solution providers, policy, researchers and businesses, who will address and discuss the possibilities to enhance the adoption of waste-to-energy technologies and solutions that can help in improving access to clean cooking in the African countries. This webinar is a part of the second course of the SESA capacity building programme, a self-paced e-learning format which focuses on clean cooking and waste-to-energy. The courses are available on the NUA campus platform.
