By Abdulkadir Khalif

The World Bank has announced a $150 million electricity recovery project to help light up Somalia.

According to a statement released last week by the Bank’s International Development Association (IDA), the project will increase access to cleaner, lower cost electricity for 1.1 million households, or approximately 7 million people, of which 3.5 million are women.

“The project also aims to reestablish a stable electricity supply and support regional integration,” the statement indicated.
