Climate disasters have crippled Mauritania in recent years, but improving access to healthcare and more so electricity, could help mitigate such risks, the IMF suggests. The Mauritanian government is working to expand its electricity supply and encourage investment in the renewable energy sector, with the aim of reaching universal access by 2030.
A new study shows that solar may help reduce water pumping costs in a desert oasis of Mauritania by more than 300%, while also considerably reducing water losses.
The government of the Islamic Republic of Mauritania is inviting interested bidders to submit sealed bids for the supply and installation of solar electricity in three separate lots.
Despite very low trade between India and Mauritania, New Delhi has approved letters of credit worth $65.68 million for a solar-diesel hybrid rural electrification project in the north African country, the Embassy of Mali, which is also accredited to the country, has said.
