Djibouti receives $23.3M for national electrification project

To help Djibouti achieve universal electricity access by 2035, the World Bank is launching a $23.3 million project for the country’s poorest communities.

Within the Sustainable Electrification Program, these funds will be used for the electricity infrastructure development in Djibouti’s poorest neighbourhoods, reports ESI-Africa.

“By boosting access to electricity to over 60% of the population, and developing a roadmap for expanding access to 100% of the population, this project will be a critical step toward the national goal of ensuring all citizens have access to electricity,” said Roger Coma Cunill, World Bank senior energy specialist and co-task team leader of the project.
