Funds planned for rural electricity in Africa should be better spent on water delivery

Funds planned for rural electricity in Africa should be better spent on water delivery | Humanitarian & Cultural Causes in Africa | Scoop.it
It remains unclear whether electrification can actually improve living standards in rural areas of sub-Saharan Africa.
Igor Espanhol's insight:

"As researchers, we have previously documented the positive effects of electrification schemes. Still, we think that money earmarked for rural electrification in sub-Saharan Africa might be better spent elsewhere. Providing people with clean drinking water and sanitation infrastructure may do more to improve living standards than providing them with electricity. In addition, water and sanitation provisions are generally less expensive than rural electrification. They could improve many more lives at the same cost."
