Energy and Environment Partnership (EEP) Programme with the Andean region has been running in Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru from 2011 with support from the Ministry of the Foreign Affairs of Finland.
Indufor has provided technical assistance for the implementing agency Instituto Interamericano de Cooperación para la Agricultura (IICA) from the beginning. The programme aims to establish and strengthen knowledge base and institutional frameworks, and find practical solutions for renewable energy and energy efficiency development.
The objective is to improve access to sustainable energy and to promote its use for livelihood improvement and inclusive businesses to reduce poverty and inequality. Innovative projects in all four countries have been funded under the Programme, and the lessons learnt and experiences gained will be systematised for wider use in the region’s energy sector development.
