This cluster evaluation assesses the effectiveness of rural electrification projects funded by the African Development Bank Group. The selection of rural electrification as one of the evaluation themes is essentially due to the fact that it has a pronounced impact on the majority of Africans living in rural and sub-urban areas. During the evaluation period (1999-2013), 19 projects approved by the Bank in the energy sector, amounting to UA 462 million, were related to rural electrification.
