Pioneering Triangular Cooperation on Renewable Energy Technology Transfer in Ghana and Zambia, with China and the United Nations Development Programme

Case Summary: 

The China–Ghana/Zambia–UNDP triangular cooperation project resulted in the transfer of renewable energy technologies and in national policies and private sector partnerships that continue to facilitate the scaling up of renewable energy technologies in Ghana and Zambia. In addition, the project strengthened China’s capacity for South–South cooperation on renewable energy technology transfer.

The project contributed to fulfilling the demands of Ghana and Zambia to increase universal energy access, increase the share of renewable energy in the national energy mix and promote the productive uses of renewable energy by enhancing the exchange of expertise and technology. The project also helped experts from China, Ghana and Zambia to work together towards the achievement of the SDGs and their respective NDC targets.
