REEEP brochures and publications
Water, energy and food systems are inextricably interconnected. Water and energy are needed to produce food; water is needed for almost all forms of power generation; energy is required to treat and transport water. The relationships and trade-offs within this triangle of resources are known collectively as the water-energy-food nexus.

A lack of access to modern energy services negatively affects nearly a third of humanity. While poor people remain in darkness and ill health, there can be no escape from the vicious cycle of poverty. But how can this cycle be broken, and turned to one of increasing prosperity and economic and social development? To answer that question we must constantly improve our shared understanding of the scale, causes, and evolving solutions to the multiple dimensions of energy poverty.
Since 2000, the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) has, on behalf of its signatory investors, challenged the world’s largest companies to measure and report their carbon emissions, integrating the long-term value and cost of climate change into their assessment of the financial health and future prospects of their business.
Improving access to modern energy services in rural areas in developing countries remains a major development priority. While many countries continue to pursue ambitious and often challenging grid connection programmes, there is increasing interest in decentralized generation and distribution through mini-grids.
At the Seventh African Development Forum (ADF VII) which took place in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in October 2010, policy-makers recognizing the need to move with urgency in preparing for the impacts of climate change, as the international negotiations continue on the reduction of Green House Gases (GHG) emissions, agreed on the urgent need for Africa to act on Climate Change for Sustainable Development.
