The decree formally adopts the Letter of Energy Sector Development Policy. The objective of the policy is to ensure an adequate supply of energy at affordable prices.

The principles are:

  1. the improvement of the supply of wood energy through the sustainable management of resources;
  2. the promotion of substitution fuels such as kerosene and butane;
  3. raising the awareness about imporved cookstoves;
  4. and the opening of the market of wood energy to increase competition between the suppliers

The adoption of the policy enabled the mobilisation of financial resources which resulted among others in the extension of rural electrification to 80 villages.

This record is superseded by:Sectorial Policy of Energy
