Development Africa has identified various renewable resources and sustainability strategies that can be adapted to development
initiatives. Over the last four years, Development Africa has provided numerous primary healthcare centres and hospitals
across the country with solar-powered electric systems and water heaters, and energy efficient LED lights and medical equipment.
Energy sources that are sustainable and dependable are of vital importance for medical centres aiming to provide consistent and
effective treatment. Through this initiative, Development Africa provides these facilities with an alternative to the often unreliable
power grid and the high cost of generators, allowing for better and more efficient care of patients.
“There can be no sustainable development without sustainable energy development.”
—Margot Wallstrom, European Union Environmental Commissioner (2004)
