INFORSE-South Asia NGO Cooperation Project
Poverty Reduction with Sustainable Energy
2005 - 2008

INFORSE South Asia Cooperation Project on Sustainable Energy to Reduce Poverty

From March 2005 to January 31 2008, the organisations of INFORSE-South Asia cooperated on a joint project to strengthen the capacities of NGOs to incorporate sustainable energy into their work for poverty reduction.

The participating organisations were:
INSEDA and AIWC from India, IDEA from Sri Lanka, CRT from Nepal, and Grameen Shakti from Bangladesh.

The project was supported by:
The Danish Small Grant Facility for NGOs’ development projects; it involved the Danish Organisation for Sustainable Energy (OVE) and the Danish International Settlement Service (DIB).

Project Activities:

The project focused on training in practical solutions with new training materials in English and in the four national languages; seminars for NGOs in the four countries; an additional focus on NGO involvement in national policies and strategies; and strengthening of the INFORSE network in the region.

Project Duration:

The project lasted almost 3 years. It started with an inception meeting at the end of March 2005 in Sri Lanka.

Contacts:
Contact the project partner in your country. If you are outside the region, contact INSEDA or OVE. Their contact information can be found in the INFORSE database.
