Towards an ‘Energy Plus’ Approach for the Poor: A review of good practices and lessons learned from Asia and the Pacific



This report documents good practices and lessons learned in addressing energy poverty and expanding energy services for the poor. It draws from the experiences of 17 energy access programmes and projects in the Asia-Pacific region. It highlights that breaking through the energy-poverty cycle is best achieved by combining the delivery of energy services with measures that generate cash incomes. This ‘Energy Plus’ approach has the greatest potential for reducing poverty and achieving the Millennium Development Goals. [http://www.snap-undp.org/elibrary/Publication.aspx?id=600]
