- The overall objective of the study is to provide a fully costed project document, containing an action plan, for deployment of solar panels within the host communities for lighting and also for women to use in cooking and meeting their other energy demands.
- The study will cover women and host communities in Adamawa, Akwa-Ibom and Benue States.
Duties and Responsibilities
- Review all available documentation, by the UN system, Federal and State Governments, as well as other donor agencies on resettlement of persons affected by the 2002 ICJ judgement.
- Identify existing means of energy use and available alternative energy sources in host communities of the three states.
- Identify sustainable development issues relating to the present forms of energy use, including impacts on men, women, children (disaggregated by gender) and demand and supply dynamics of energy in the host communities.
- Identify enablers and constraints to the adoption of solar panels as an energy source in the host communities.
- Identify requisite quantity of solar panels, batteries – including capacities based on use (lighting and cooking etc) - and related accessories that would need to be deployed to meet the energy demand of host communities.
- Identify capacity building needs on usage, operation and maintenance of solar panels to be deployed to host communities.
- Based on the results of the above, items (a) – (f), design a fully costed project with clear action plan(s) that would contribute immensely to adoption of solar panels as an energy source by individuals, especially women in the host communities.
