BR6: Findings from the Kuching Smart Villages Workshop

Kuching Workshop Report
Kuching Policy Brief

The Smart Villages Initiative held its second major international workshop in Kuching, then capital city of Sarawak, Malaysia in January 2015. The workshop was the outcome of a collaboration between the Smart Villages Initiative, Akademi Sains Malaysia (the Malaysian Academy of Sciences) and Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS). It brought together a diverse group of around 80 people working on energy access for off-grid villages to review their experiences to date, and to identify barriers to further progress and how they may be overcome. The workshop focused on the provision of off-grid energy in Southeast Asia.

This note provides a summary for policy makers of the workshop’s findings. A more detailed report of the workshop, together with copies of the presentations made at the workshop is available here.
