Many LuminaNET members are also involved (in one way or another) with the ongoing work of Lighting Global (and Lighting Africa / Lighting Asia), the IFC-World Bank programs supporting markets for off-grid lighting. I'm one of the people who helps coordinate the Quality Assurance (QA) aspects of those programs and we just released an important update to the QA framework. The updates are informed (as always) by a stakeholder process that many of you probably participated in. Thank you!
The full details are linked here and I've included some highlights here:
You might be asking yourself what the difference is between Lighting Global and Lighting Africa, which is the program that spawned our efforts. Lighting Global is basically a spin-off of the elements from Lighting Africa that apply across countries and regions (like QA). It allows us to have a single program that supports a range of others with more regional focus.
PS: Linked to the elimination of the Performance Targets, we are starting a new stakeholder process that will inform a performance reporting requirement that will be added soon to the Minimum Quality Standards. The stakeholder process is going to be launched in November, so stay tuned...
