We invited more than 20 students and young researchers from different disciplines to Kathmandu, Nepal and took a deep dive into the methods and concepts of transdisciplinary research. Here, participants share their experinces.
The ACCESS learning group (composed by Practical Action, energypedia, GERES, IIED and the Wuppertal institute) initiated a series of Smart-Webinars, starting with a webinar on “Productive uses of energy (PUE) and the role of Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in promoting PUE” as a highly relevant topic for the ACCESS Coalition.
During the webinar the WISIONS team presented its research on productive use of energy, which is based on the evaluation of 30 small-scale energy projects in the global south supported by WISIONS. The webinar furthermore included a presentation from ACCESS Coalition about its strategy for 2019-2021 and two case studies, which highlighted experiences from Kenya: Practical Action focused on milling and ice-making for making a mini-grid viable and the Rainforest Alliance presented their experiences of promoting local briquettes manufacturing in tea industries.
This webinar was the first in a series of webinars that targets knowledge sharing from Civil Society Organizations operating in energy access for other CSOs and beyond.
