Micro-hydroelectric Dams Sustain Life in Rural Communities

February 9, 2016

Over the last 12 years, the National Solidarity Program (NSP), under MRRD, has invested over $200 million in projects to provide access to energy to over four million people in rural communities. More than 8,000 energy sector sub-projects, which have a total generation capacity of over 100 MW of power, have been financed under NSP. A recent impact evaluation of NSP underlined that energy related projects scored well on both impact and sustainability, exemplified by this sub-project in Sabzaab village.
