Description :
The scope of this mission includes the development of a GIS database of the relevant layers and a geospatial analysis of least-cost electrification options that will be used to inform the Government of Madagascar to achieve national electrification objectives.
The detailed geospatial analysis presented least-cost options for electrification at scale and estimated the corresponding investment and operating cost requirements for the entire power system at the national level.
