Abstract

The goal of our project was to develop an interactive data portal to assist in rural electrification in Namibia through a collaboration between the Hanns Seidel Foundation and the Ministry of Mines and Energy. In order to successfully achieve this goal, the team met with over a dozen stakeholders to understand the roles of various organizations in rural electrification initiatives. These meetings provided essential data and uncovered suggestions to increase the ease of use and efficacy of the portal. The resulting data portal will aid government ministries, regional electricity distributors, NGOs, and local contractors store and access accurate information that directly impacts future electrification efforts.
