OVERVIEW OF SUPPORT : Finland is supporting renewable energy and energy efficiency in the Southern and East African region mainly through its Energy and Environment Partnership (EEP) Programme. It runs until the end of 2017. The mechanism in use is a challenge fund with rounds of Calls for Proposals. Since the beginning in 2010, there have been 13 Calls for Proposals, and 225 projects in 13 countries have been funded. The Programme is led by Finland, and also supported by DFID and Austria. We are currently planning a next phase for the Programme to start early 2018.
