AFREPREN/FWD - Energy, Environment and Development Network for Africa Website
Efficiency, Environment and Climate Change
energy efficiency environment and climate change theme group tackles three
subject areas, namely:
common element among these three subject areas is their potential energy and
green house as savings.
prolonged discussions and consultation with AFREPREN/FWD’s principal donors as
well as external reviewers and the research advisory panel, it was decided that
this theme group will concentrate on the formulation of proposals based on past
research work for field implementation. The projects’ expected output will be
in the form of “investment proposals” for submission to GEF and other
potential donors such as the European Commission.
meeting’s main objectives included:
Review of country research proposals and issues that are relevant to the
region and suitable for GEF type of projects such as:
Preparation of outlines for GEF project concepts and proposals
Drafting a work plan for 1999/2000
participants to the Energy Efficiency, Environment and Climate Change Meeting
were drawn from four countries, namely: Botswana, Kenya, Zimbabwe and Tanzania.
They comprised the energy researchers from private research organizations, from
the University, from a Government Ministry and from a Municipal Authority.
sub-groups were established in line with the above three different subject areas
and each group developed a draft GEF project concept paper. The projected
budgets of the projects were not to exceed US$ 750,000, the limit for GEF
medium-sized projects which can take as little as six months to go through the
approval process as the GEF Chief Executive can approve the project without GEF
on Climate Change
climate change sub-group will develop concept paper and a Block A PDF paper on “Introducing
Walk and Cycle Paths To Urban Streets In The Cities of Gaborone and Harare”.
‘Environment sub-group’ will develop project concept papers and Block A PDF
papers on “Energy Generation from Botswana Meat Commission Lobatse Waste and
from Mtibwa Sugarcane Factory in Tanzania”.
Sub-group on Energy Efficiency
sub-group will develop project concept papers and Block A PDF papers on
“Efficiency Improvement for Boilers, Motors and Drives at the Zisco Steel
Company in Zimbabwe and at the BCL Mines Company in Botswana”
researchers will enter a three month contract with AFREPREN/FWD to prepare GEF
documentation. The envisaged outputs to the end of 1999 include:
researchers will, in addition, provide statistics bureau reports, national
development plans, energy master plans, published reports such power utility
annual reports and petroleum company reports, an a background paper on proposed
project (an outline was dispatched to researchers).
the project concept and /or Block A PDF paper being endorsed by GEF,
will provide additional resources in the Year 2000 to assist the researchers in
preparing their draft GEF project brief. The
contract will be pegged to the following outputs:
Additional outputs to be submitted to AFREPREN/FWD include published reports (as above) and a background paper on proposed project as will as clear evidence that background paper has been submitted to journal for publication.
