Mali Is Investing in Renewable Energy to Boost Its Economy
Could Mali become one of the leaders in renewable energy in Africa?
Like a lot of countries on the continent, Mali has seen considerable economic growth over the last few years. Despite a political crisis in 2012 and the threat of violent extremism, the country has seen 5% annual GDP growth in 2014, with World Bank projecting that growth to continue over the coming years.
This economic development, coupled with a 15.3 million population that is growing at an annual rate of 3.4%, is increasing demand for power in the country.
