The programme aims to contribute to improving the living conditions of rural communities through sustainable access to electricity and to boost the accelerated municipalisation programme initiated by the Government in 2004 aimed at providing all District headquarters with basic social infrastructure. The programme will be implemented in several stages,taking into account the on-going development of power transmission grids. The electrification of the first 20 centres in the 10 Departments is funded by Indian Cooperation.
