GPOBA has agreed to provide a US$5.0 million grant to co-finance Mali's Rural Electrification Hybrid System Project, which aims to expand rural access to modern energy services and to increase renewable generation in target areas..
Municipal solid waste management (MSW) is a crucial service provided by cities around the world, but is often inefficient and underperforming in developing countries. Low-income countries face the most acute challenges with solid waste management, with cities collecting less than half the waste stream and less than half of that amount processed to minimum standards.
Electrification can be a significant driver for improving livelihoods in rural communities. In rural Mali, where more than 80 percent of the country's population lives, the electrification rate is only 15 percent.
