The Project Objective is to expand access to electricity in targeted rural and peri urban communities in Somalia, including Somaliland. The project has three components:
Electrification of households and small businesses through standalone solar home systems [US$ 3 million]. The proposed component is based on a well-tested approach to catalyzing commercial markets for off-grid solar developed by the joint World Bank-IFC Lighting Africa program. A holistic, bespoke approach to addressing both demand and supply-side bottlenecks will be developed for the specific needs of the Somali off-grid market.

The World Bank Inspection Panel is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by a World Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Inspection Panel, they may investigate to assess whether the World Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can contact the Inspection Panel or submit a complaint by emailing email@example.com.
