Making Africa’s Power Sector Sustainable: An Analysis of Power Sector Reforms in Africa
"This study assesses the socio-economic and environmental impacts of power sector reforms especially on the poor and uses the results of the assessment to determine the extent to which reforms have made the power sector in sub-Saharan Africa sustainable. Furthermore, it proposes options that could enhance the sustainability of the power sector.
The study adds value to the limited but growing literature on power sector reforms in sub-Saharan Africa. While past studies have mainly assessed the status and outcomes of power sector reforms, this study adds value by assessing whether the reforms taking place are sustainable. Moreover, the study is one of the very few that have attempted to incorporate environmental concerns within the context of power sector reforms."
