Between 2017 and 2018, in partnership with the African Development Bank, the African Climate Technology Centre supported nine research projects on Mitigation and Adaptation in Africa.
In 2017, the ACTC launched a call for proposals to identify and provide technical assistance to promising research projects that would contribute to the ACTC’s objectives. The focus was on identifying research projects that contribute to the creation and sharing of knowledge regarding the barriers which constrain market dissemination of climate friendly technologies in Sub-Saharan Africa, specifically for Clean Cooking, Renewable Energy and Adaptation Technologies for the Water Sector.
The call for proposals raised much interest and seventy-five institutions or consortia submitted their research proposals. Following a competitive review process, nine institutions were selected to receive technical assistance.
The research conducted in this area looks at evidence and actionable recommendations on how to improve the diffusion of clean cooking solutions following a market-based approach. The research supported by ACTC examines specific topics in Kenya, Tanzania, Cameroon and Nigeria. View projects
The research awarded conducted in this area have produced evidence and actionable recommendations on how to foster the adoption of intermittent renewable energy in Africa, in order to increase energy access and the delivery of quality power to consumers. The awarded institutions work in research focuses specifically on Ghana, Ethiopia and South Africa. View projects
The research in this area deals with awareness about adaptation technologies, the barriers to their adoption, and on providing actionable recommendations for enhancing the adoption of adaptation technologies in for water usages and management. The supported research projects target Botswana, Malawi, South Africa, the ECOWAS region, Namibia, Zambia and Mozambique. View projects
