The West African Solar Pack (under the umbrella of the MAMA-LIGHT Initiative for Sustainable Energy) has been adopted by the Board of ECREEE at its 18th session on the 28th of February 2020 in Praia Cabo Verde.
Accordingly to the implementation plan in each ECOWAS country a MAMA-LIGTH® Innovation Data’s and Sustainability Center (MALINODASUC®) in combination with e-Cooperatives® will be established.
The WASP adds value to solar energy related products and contributes to a minimum of 1 million decent jobs per country, summing up to a total of minimum of 15 million jobs in the Green Economy for the 15 ECOWAS Members States.
The WASP aggregates and consolidates the demand for solar solutions in the ECOWAS region and is part of the delivery mechanism of the ECOWAS Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ECREEE) under the umbrella of MAMA-LIGHT® Initiative for Sustainable Energy.
The WASP aims to translate the Global Agenda on SDG 7 on energy and global climate action into concrete actions for ECOWAS citizens and businesses. It is about getting a fair share in the value chains based on win/win partnerships. It builds on existing regional and international sustainable energy initiatives. WASP also accelerates the mission and the mandate of ECREEE in the implementation of the ECOWAS region’s sustainable energy targets. It embraces local inclusive digital technology that is critical to take the African continent towards a low carbon, climate resilient future, aligned with Agendas 2063 and 2030 of the SDG’s as well as the historic Paris Agreement.
