The Government of Vanuatu (GoV) has prioritized, through its National Energy Roadmap (NERM), developing projects that utilize energy as a driver of inclusive green growth and poverty reduction in rural communities. GGGI is supporting these efforts through the Green and Inclusive Energy Reform project, which is:
Assisting in the revision of the NERM
Providing technical assistance in the drafting of energy efficiency goals and developing recommendations for implementing energy efficiency measures
Undertaking green growth analysis on the energy sector
Mapping climate adaptation and mitigation funds for financing the implementation of the NERM
Developing recommendations on establishing a green growth financing mechanism
The objectives of the project are to support the Department of Energy, GoV, to revise the NERM and develop an implementation plan for the revised NERM, which includes identifying inclusive green growth interventions.
