If nothing is done to improve the Nigerian market for clean household lighting solutions, as many as ten million people could still be using kerosene in 2030 and suffering from the fuel’s negative effects.
A resourced, strategic approach to the full market transformation to zero-emission solar LED lighting, following a well proven integrated policy approach as applied by United for Efficiency in some 40 countries worldwide, is applicable to Nigeria. This approach takes time and resources to appropriately design, plan and deliver but would have a high positive impact at a relatively low cost.
A five-year programme to completely phase out kerosene lighting in Nigeria recommended for the benefit of the more than 30 million people that currently use this fuel – this is a significant large scale-opportunity with wide economic, social and environmental benefits, including for reducing short-lived climate pollutants at the household level.
