USAID Empowering Development brochures

ESG developed a series of brochures for USAID to highlight the role that energy can play as a critical input in meeting the development challenges in the agriculture, education, health, SMEs, water, economic growth, natural resources and the environment, and other development sectors.  The brochures included an overview of the issue, a demonstration of the links between energy services, economic development and poverty reduction, and numerous case studies.  The primary audience for this publication consisted of decision makers and development activity implementers in the agriculture, water, education, communication, enterprise, rural infrastructure, etc., sectors where clean, reliable energy is a critical input in enhancing economic and social development.  This publication set also benefited USAID Mission officers and staff to enhance their programs through better understanding of the opportunities and benefits of clean energy for multi-applications.
