Lighting Global is the World Bank Group’s platform to support sustainable growth of the international off-grid lighting market in order to improve energy access for people without any or reliable grid electricity.
Lighting Global collaborates with the Global Off-Grid Lighting Association (GOGLA), manufacturers, distributors, and other development partners to support growth of the off-grid lighting market.
Lighting Global program generates knowledge products and steers the development of quality assurance frameworks. The program currently supports market transformation activities of regional programs.
IFC and World Bank jointly manage off-grid lighting programs in 10 sub-Saharan African countries through the Lighting Africa program, and programs in India and Papua New Guinea implemented by the Lighting Asia program. More programs are under development in Bangladesh, Pakistan and Indonesia, and in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.
