EEP Africa is proud to publish the first Annual Report since its transition to a multi-donor fund hosted by the Nordic Development Fund (NDF). The report highlights the new project portfolio and plans for the future, while also showcasing EEP Africa’s cumulative achievements since 2010.
In 2018, NDF proudly took on the legacy and future direction of EEP Africa, expanding our commitment to the clean energy and green growth transition in Africa. We will continue to build on the strong foundation of success inherited from Finland as the founding donor.
Leena Klossner, Vice President, Acting Managing Director, NDF
