Communities of Practice as driver of a bottom-up energy transition in Nigeria
As of: January 2022
The overall objective of the project is to achieve a climate-friendly energy supply through decentralized renewable energy (DRE) in Nigeria by 2030. In order to achieve this, civil society must play a driving role. The project therefore aims to create exemplary civil society nuclei ("Communities of Practice") and to empower them to plan and implement DRE projects (local level). Based on this, it will work transdisciplinary on improving the political framework for local decentralized RE projects (national level). Finally, the establishment of a monitoring and dissemination platform will serve to verify the impact of local projects and allow extrapolation in Nigeria and Sub-Saharan Africa (regional level). In this way, civil society can be empowered to implement DRE independently and make a significant contribution to the achievement of climate change mitigation goals.
