This report finds that successful partnerships actively promote community empowerment through engagement of community members in leading to a higher level of ownership of community based energy projects. It aims to provide examples of practical experiences and good practices, to demonstrate that public-private renewable energy partnerships can play an effective role for improving energy access to the rural poor and help to create the inclusive, resilient, and sustainable future we want.




With support from United Nations Development Account, the five regional commissions and the Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA) are working together to enhance energy security and improve access to energy services through development of public-private renewable energy partnerships. The initiative is led by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) with additional funding from the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD).
