French Development Agency funds plans for mini-hydro plants in Uganda

The French Development Agency- Agence Française de Développement (AFD) has committed Euro 1.5 million (just over UGX 6 billion) to go towards preparation of feasibility studies for development of small hydro power plants in the West Nile Region of Uganda.

West Nile was particularly selected because it plays host to refugees from South Sudan and DR Congo. “The mini-hydroplants will contribute to the improvement of the isolated power grid system in the region and enhance access to electricity for the population, being local communities or refugees,” The Agency said in a statement.
