LEDS Global Partnership Case Study: Community engagement as key component of successful mini-grid development Experiences from Nigeria and Sierra Leone
This case study offers an overview of approaches to the design of community engagement programmes and highlights key challenges and success factors. It is a useful resource for other countries interested in developing systems and strategies for embedding community engagement in their rural electrification efforts.
Sugarcane production is an important activity and a major employer in the African agriculture, with an estimated six million people deriving their livelihood from the sugar industry. Given these contributions, any factor affecting the industry has an impact on the overall economy. With a relatively low adaptive capacity and poor forecasting systems and mitigation strategies, sugarcane farming is anticipated to be significantly impacted by climate change, just like other agricultural sectors, especially in developing countries.
