Abstract: The report assesses challenges facing the wider uses of renewable energy technologies in water services. Promotion of pro-poor renewable-based water pumping options in East Africa such as treadle pumps, wind pumps and ram pumps (examined in this report), will demand collaboration between the ministries in charge of energy with those in charge of water and agriculture. Even though appropriate technologies exist, the study’s findings indicate that there are no clear-cut policies to support the dissemination of renewable energy technologies for water services as an adaptation strategy to climate change. Most national policies and strategies focus of large-scale conventional power generation technologies.
