The project will contribute significantly to increasing the access to thermal energy and electricity through a technology neutral approach, in 19,500 households in 194 rural communities in Afghanistan. This will result in increasing the access to electricity, clean cooking and heating options and will contribute to a tangible reduction in the pre-mature deaths of women and children due to indoor air pollution. The project will pilot seven innovative financing models which once successful will be mainstreamed. The project will also establish conducive policy and regulatory frameworks and capacity development of key stakeholders. It is envisaged that, the project will establish a sustainable rural energy supply approach which can be scaled up beyond the project period.
The ASERD program plans to establish sustainable rural energy services in 194 rural communities in 5 years, providing both electrical and thermal energy services. The efforts will bring sustainable energy to over 19,500 households providing health, economic and social benefits. Most significantly, the major contribution will be the establishment of delivery models that are technology neutral, leverage additional local and international resources, mobilize communities, engage the private sector and financiers to establish a self-sustaining delivery model. The program will also aim to establish the right frameworks for policy, regulation, environmental protection, quality and incentives and develop human and institutional capacities for these delivery models to continue to increase access to energy in Rural Afghanistan.
The Border Electrification Projects aims at providing basic electricity access to border areas adjacent to the Islamic Republic of Pakistan and the Islamic Republic of Iran through the provision of a variety of Solar Home Systems (SHS). A total number of 3,000,000 beneficiaries would benefit from the project encompassing 55 districts in 13 provinces.
The main aim of the project is to provide ample stimulus to entice economic growth, health improvement, education gains and other socio-economic benefits in the target areas.
