CONSULTANCY FOR THE PREPARATION OF DOCUMENT “INPUTS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A DEPARTAMENTAL PUBLIC POLICY IN RENEWABLE ENERGIES FOR RURAL ZONES”
The Alliance Program in Energy and Environment with the Andean Region (AEA) works in the field of sustainable energy through the promotion of renewable energies (EERR) and energy efficiency (EE) in rural and peri-urban areas. Through business initiatives that support the development of energy markets.
The AEA Program received the request of the Legislative Assembly of Tarija to support the hiring of a consultancy so that the Assembly can have inputs that serve for the elaboration of a public policy focused on expanding energy access in isolated rural areas with energy solutions (EERR and EE) of small scale for vulnerable populations. These Terms of Reference are the result of a concerted review between the AEA Program and the Departmental Legislative Assembly of Tarija.

The considerations must take into account the needs and strategic interests of women, youth, indigenous peoples and other actors in the productive sector.
