Energy Subsidy Reform and Delivery Technical Assistance Facility
As of: July 2020
Objective and activities
The Energy Sector Management Assistance Programme (ESMAP) of the World Bank Group and 18 partners help emerging and developing countries to promote growth through environmentally sustainable energy solutions. The ESMAP Trust Fund supports the development of know-how and resources to drive the development of these solutions. Various initiatives are also supported by the ESMAP, one of which is the “Energy Subsidy Reform and Delivery Technical Assistance Facility”, which focuses on energy policy reforms in selected partner countries where subsidies for fossil fuels are to be dismantled. The measures include analyses of the framework conditions and tailor-made technical support. Teams of experts also disseminate knowledge in the form of studies and training courses in the fields of energy, industry, social protection and poverty reduction, and the ESMAP provides advisory services on communication strategies, policy impact assessments and other mechanisms for the climate-friendly regulation of energy prices.
