96% of people in Nepal have access to electricity, a number that stood at just 51% a few years ago.

This video is one of three country case studies (Ethiopia, Nepal and Togo) focusing on Integrated Electrification Pathways. Want to learn more about the importance of integrated approaches to electrification? Read our primer report.
