In particular, the meeting will:

  • Survey the clean energy technologies used by households in conservation landscapes
  • Explore why people may be resistant to adopting new technologies
  • Share success stories on how conservation groups have introduced new technologies
  • Learn how other actors can be further engaged in emerging opportunities for significant progress in the field.

The meeting will allow for an open discussion with the audience both in-person and via an online webinar.

In 2012 the Africa Wildlife Foundation and the Jane Goodall Institute, produced two reports and accompanying report briefs authored by GVEP International, targeted at a broad spectrum of audiences including policy makers, natural resource managers and households.

The report, a Review of Household Clean Energy Technology for Lighting, Charging and Cooking in East Africa-Kenya and Tanzania: A Learning Report, is aimed at informing policy development to enhance the adoption of appropriate technologies and production methods.

A follow up report builds on the findings of the review of household clean energy technologies, and presents a toolkit to better identify and support appropriate and context sensitive technologies and approaches for implementing agencies. The report, subtitled Toolkit for Implementing Household Energy Projects in Conservation Areas, proves useful for the wider conservation community and household-level energy sector development as well.
