2009 annual report (English)

Since Energy Sector Management Assistance Program's (ESMAP's) inception more than 25 years ago, its primary mission has remained steady: to help its client countries increase their knowhow and institutional capacity to achieve environmentally sustainable energy solutions for poverty reduction and economic growth. Over the past year, ESMAP has taken significant steps, in line with its new 2008-13 strategic business plans, to extend its engagement with client countries to encompass the nexus of energy security, energy access, and climate change, mirroring the changing landscape of global energy challenges. ESMAP's challenge is to more proactively assist client countries to acquire fresh ideas and insights on how to reduce the vulnerability of their energy sectors to increasing climate variability, while transitioning to a low carbon development path that can support poverty reduction and economic growth. In the years ahead, ESMAP looks forward to helping its client countries grapple with new and emerging energy challenges while maintaining the course towards poverty reduction and economic growth.
