Switzerland has donated 3.4 billion CFA francs to Cameroon for the development of renewable energy, including the promotion of solar energy, according to APA sources.

The reports states that a grant agreement has been signed between the Minister of Economy, Planning and Spatial Planning (MINEPAT), Alamine Ousmane Mey and the Swiss Ambassador to Cameroon, Pietro Larezzi.

For the Swiss diplomat, this financial support provided to Cameroon buttresses his country’s willingness to implement the resolutions of COP21, whose purpose is to preserve the environment.

The two countries met as part of the first session of the steering and follow-up committee of the implementation of this grant.

The projects funded by this Swiss donation will be executed by the Rural Electrification Agency (AER) and will primarily target the country’s most remote areas.
