The launch of the capacity building partnership in Nigeria kicked off with its inaugural session. It provided a comprehensive overview of the evolution, trends, opportunities, and challenges within the country's decentralized renewable energy sector.
The financing model was discussed and clarified between the communities and cooperatives and an agreement between the financer (SunFarmer), farmer groups and local cooperatives has been concluded. Furthermore, the most appropriate vegetables for cultivation at the project sites have been identified. The photovoltaic pumping systems are currently being installed in Dhading and Makwanpur, with the construction works monitored by Practical Action and other NGOs.
