About Energising Development: Energy Access Partnership
The Energising Development (EnDev) programme is a multi-donor partnership, currently financed and governed by the governments of the Netherlands, Germany, Norway, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, and Sweden. Further financial contributions to country projects have been given by Irish Aid, the EU, USAID, and the Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) supporting individual bilateral projects. EnDev promotes sustainable access to modern energy services for households, social institutions and small to medium-sized enterprises in developing countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America. The supported energy services meet the needs of the poor, i.e. they are long lasting, affordable, and appreciated by users. EnDev is currently working in 25 developing countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America
The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit ( GIZ ) GmbH has been commissioned by the donors to act as the lead agency for implementing the Energising Development programme. On the global level, GIZ and the Netherlands Enterprise Agency ( RVO ) cooperate closely on the programme coordination. EnDev works with partners in the governmental, non-governmental and private sector to implement activities in developing countries. At country level, EnDev projects cooperate with international, bilateral and multilateral programmes. In 2019, EnDev has been working on the implementation of project interventions with local and international NGOs
