Infrastructure 2013: Electricity
The world´s population is moving to the cities. Cities in developing countries are growing especially fast. About one billion of the world´s 3,5 billion urban inhabitants are living in informal settlements, or slums. This number is expected to increase. What kind of access to the cities’ infrastructure do these people have? Do they have access to electricity, drinking water, sewage systems and transportation?
Habitat Norway wishes to address these and other issues in the seminar series ‘Infrastructure 2013’. The third seminar will look at the access to electricity in informal settlements and growing cities. How is the daily life, the outlook of a more prosperous life and security affected by the lack of or insufficient and sporadic access to electricity? And are informal settlements taken into account when calculating and planning improvements on the electric grids? What alternative solutions could be utilized?
