What level of electricity access is required to enable and sustain poverty reduction? Annex 1 – Literature review

Abstract

Policymakers aiming to maximise the transformative power of electricity are interested in answering two questions:
1. What level of electricity access is required to enable and sustain poverty reduction?
2. Which other factors need to be in place for electricity to be used productively and lead to income generation?

This review aims to provide further light on the questions above by identifying the links between different levels of access to electricity and their impact on poverty reduction as reported by existing evidence based literature.
