Notes from the Webinar: ‘Renewable Energy for Resilient Health Systems in Nigeria’; Thursday 5 August 2021, 11 am – 12.45 noon; UK-Nigeria collaboration: University of Dundee (UK), Covenant University (Nigeria) & The Rural Electrification Agency (Nigeria). The webinar was supported by the UKRI and Scottish Funding Council.
The Webinar was chaired by Dr Maria Augusta Paim, and introduced by Professor Volker Roeben and Dr Xiaoyi Mu, both from the Centre for Energy, Petroleum and Mineral Law and Policy – CEPMLP. Professor Volker Roeben has noted the importance of the project to understand the critical challenge of renewable energy investments for a resilient health sector in Nigeria, particular their sustainability in the long run. In his views, this challenge needs to be addressed by the global community, and despite the focus in Nigeria, the webinar’s topic is relevant for all countries in Africa and the developing world.
