Title: Electrification for developing countries

Abstract

The future of developing nations hinges to a large extent on the growth of electrification, according to Dr. Hisham Khatib of the World Energy Council's committee for developing countries. But in trying to make electricity widely available, the poorer nations of the world face serious barriers, including capital shortages, institutional weakness, and a pressing need for technology transfer. This paper discussed these and other key energy issues for developing countries and prescribed a strong helping hand from the industrialized world. 2 tabs.
