District Climate and Energy Plan
March 11, 2016A. GENERAL BACKGROUND
The main goal of the District Climate and Energy Plan (DCEP) is to create a planning process for accelerating the dissemination of renewable energy technologies at district level, contributing to development goals at national and local level. In addition to energy development, DCEP addresses climate change impacts on energy planning and ensures that GSI issues are addressed throughout the planning and implementation processes.
The overall objective of the DCEP of Dang district is;
To prepare a climate change adaptive, decentralized renewable energy plan that can contribute to climate change mitigation and ensures Gender and Social Inclusion (GSI) issues are addressed, through assessment of the institutional set up of the district in relation to requirements of accelerated dissemination of Renewable Energy (RE) and recommendations on organizational arrangements needed to implement the DCEP. This document has treated climate change and GSI issues in a systematic way at all stages of the planning process. The focus of DCEPs is to expand energy service provision through and coordination of implementation. Primary data were collected from Village Development Committees (VDCs)/municipalities and secondary data were taken from different stakeholders and institutions. Limitations to the study include a general lack of recent disaggregated data of Dang on GSI, especially those relating to renewable energy. There is also very limited reliable climate change data for Dang. The entire DCEP is primarily focused on residential sector energy planning and projection.
