The achievement of the results will enable the Cabo Verdean population to benefit from sustainable access to clean and cheaper energy, allowing a reduction of family expenses and the creation of local activities that generate jobs and income.

Main activities
There are two axes: The first axis is institutional support including governance and capacity building and dissemination of information and sectoral dialogue. The second axis is support for sustainable financing.
