UNDP, China promoting renewables in Ethiopia

Addis Ababa, July 3, 2023 (FBC) – The United Nations Development Program has hailed its partnership with China in promoting the affordable renewable energy in the Global South, highlighting a project with Ethiopia that seeks to expand access to renewable energy in the African country.

UNDP Ethiopia Deputy Resident Representative Cleophas Torori underscored the importance of the innovative project, Biogas, Biomass and Solar Trilateral Cooperation – Transitioning to Sustainable Energy Uses in the Agro-Industry between China and Ethiopia, in promoting the transfer of renewable energy technology to Ethiopia, CGTN reported.

“We are very privileged to be working in support of this trilateral partnership under a framework that we value at the UNDP, which is promoting South-South Cooperation,” he said.

Torori said the project has been implemented based on the technological advancement that China, in particular, made in recent years in the renewable energy development sector.

“China is advanced in some of the technologies that Ethiopia, as a developing country, could very much benefit from under the South-South cooperation framework, and that is what this project is about,” he said.
