The Smart Villages Initiative organised a workshop in Panama City on 2-3 May 2017, bringing
together significant actors in rural electrification in Latin America to discuss challenges and opportunities in rural electrification, with the aim of jointly developing recommendations to policymakers. Key topics for discussion included the role of the government versus the private sector in rural electrification, innovative options for financing such as smart subsidies, and strategies to increase the impact and sustainability of interventions.
