For long, developing countries have been dumping sites for low quality and inefficient energy products with poor performance. For the case of refrigerators and air conditioners, this negatively impacts the environment and incur a cost to the user.  For instance, some families have the fridges but do not use them due to the high operation costs. In the East African region, chlorofluorocarbons and hydro chlorofluorocarbons are still being used as refrigerants yet they impose negative effects on the environment.

Access to clean, affordable and reliable modern energy is crucial for sustainable socioeconomic development. For this, Small Hydropower Plants offer a technically feasible and economically viable option. But still majority of the countries in East and West Africa have not fully utilized their vast Small Hydropower potential. This is due to barriers such as limited technical capacities and missing standards among others. With this in mind, the International Small Hydropower Training was organised in Abuja, Nigeria.
