In a DFID-funded project (R8147, Impact of the withdrawal of modern energy on urban poor) bringing together NGOs and energy institutions in Albania, Kyrgyzstan, and Moldova, Gamos have conducted field research aimed at helping policy makers and CSOs understand the likely impact of changes in energy supplies on the urban poor. The research uses statistical analysis to identify how people's behaviour with respect to energy use has already changed, and how they are likely to cope with forthcoming changes.
A stakeholder meeting was held in May 2004, at which delegates requested the project publish a detailed country report including a comprehensive analysis of the household data - this document has been written in response to that request.
