Harare, September 25 2013 (News of the South) – Zimbabwe`s energy sector has suffered from being unnoticed as a stand-alone goal and being excluded in the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

At a workshop held in Harare Practical Action an international non-governmental organisation (NGO) has suggested that energy matters should be addressed as developmental issues after 2015.

Policy and advocacy officer for energy at Practical Action Reginald Mapfumo said the energy sector must be recognised in the same manner health, agriculture and environment sectors are regarded.

There is need to push for the government to prioritise energy the sector.

“It is an initiative that is being pushed at a very high level, the United Nations is pushing for it and our hope is that if we push as governments both in Africa and internationally we can achieve our goal,” Mapfumo said.

Meanwhile Zimbabwe, amongst other Regional countries is experiencing a power shortfall as demand is exceeding supply by up to 700MW. The power shortage is resulting in load shedding that is negatively impacting on domestic, business and institutional customers.
