This Africa AFOLU Community of Practice session focused on approaches to link
small-scale energy and agriculture in the Africa region. The session began with an
overview of approaches and then dived into the use of solar pumps for irrigation at
the global level and in Mozambique and the use of rice husk briquettes for cooking
fuel in Cote D’Ivoire.

The session concluded with a discussion across CoP participants including
experiences and lessons from other countries and ideas for further support and
engagement on this topic.
