Central Asia: Ending Energy Poverty

June 16, 2016

Almost two million households across Central Asia suffer from energy poverty. The challenges are to maintain and rehabilitate infrastructure, provide new generation infrastructure for energy-hungry, growing economies, and explore new models for energy trade - both within and outside the five-country community. The Central Asia Energy-Water Development Program (CAEWDP) is building energy and water security by leveraging the benefits of enhanced cooperation. It aims to strengthen security through partnerships with all five Central Asian countries plus Afghanistan in regional initiatives and with development partners in the context of a changing global environment.
