Afghanistan Sustainable Energy for Rural Development (ASERD)

The Afghanistan Sustainable Energy for Rural Development (ASERD) programme developed by MRRD and UNDP builds on the existing efforts to provide energy to rural areas of Afghanistan. Rural areas of Afghanistan which remains socio-economically underdeveloped in terms of education, incidence of poverty, and access to infrastructure. Lack of access to modern forms of energy has serious health implications on rural Afghani’s and predominantly affects women and children. Lack of access to energy also constrains the productivity of private enterprise and limits delivery of public services. Rural areas of Afghanistan are also blessed with renewable energy resources such as hydro, solar, wind and biomass which, when combined with appropriate technologies and institutional approaches, could significantly support the development of rural areas.
