Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world, suffering increasingly from power cuts and energy shortages. Significantly improving energy efficiency is vital, both from an economic as well as an ecologic point of view. What is more, energy efficiency is gaining relevance in the context of development targets such as the Millennium Development Goals.
adelphi advised InWEnt in developing a capacity building Programme to enhance Nepalese energy efficiency, that became an integral part of the German-Nepalese Energy Programme. As part of this programme, adelphi conducted interviews in Kathmandu, as well as a strategy workshop with potential partner organisations. A programme proposal was developed on the basis of both activities.
