UNDP is calling expressions of Interests for the Selection of an NGO / CSO for the development of the domestic energy component of the project to support the development of energy offers from renewable sources.
The Chad is facing a critical energy deficit limited to only 9% rate population’s access to electricity, with huge disparities between urban and rural areas, a dependency of Chadian households to fuel-wood and charcoal wood in the order of 83%, an access rate to renewable energies lower than 3% according to the energy master plan.
It is for this purpose that the UNDP, funds own, has developed a project of “Support the development of energy source offers renewable”. This project will allow several questions to be addressed simultaneously, including:
The economic and industrial development , with a focus on small and medium businesses that are dependent on the availability of reliable and affordable energy source ;
The health related to the traditional use of biomass for cooking needs whose intoxicating smoke severely millions of housewives and their children from a young age, creating a vicious circle of poverty ;
The empowerment of women , the scope of which is seen by thwarting the time spent in collecting wood for cooking, which could be converted back to the practice of substantial income generating activities ;
The school dropout of girls who are responsible for collecting this wood, especially in rural areas ;
The insecurity inherent in the increasingly sustained remoteness of the wood harvesting areas which acts as an aggravating factor of the risks of sexual violence based on gender ;
The deforestation, environmental issue multiforme, which is a direct consequence of over-cutting of wood for heating.

Areas of intervention
The commune of Mandalia in the department of Chari (Province of Chari Baguirmi) has specific characteristics in terms of urbanization, growing energy needs, population density, economic dynamism and proximity to large urban centers.
These are socio-economic criteria necessary to justify any initiative to increase the supply of energy services – which is to be viable from a technical and economic point of view – in a locality with an energy deficit.
The concentration of various forms and of energy options in this type of community will have a shock effect may induce a change in behavior of people an incentive to clean energy and new favorable policies and legislation in this area.
