Energy Subsidy Reform in Sub-Saharan Africa : Experiences and Lessons, Paperback / softback Book

Energy Subsidy Reform in Sub-Saharan Africa : Experiences and Lessons Paperback / softback

Part of the Departmental Paper series


The reform of energy subsidies is an important but challenging issue for sub-Saharan African (SSA) countries.

There is a relatively large theoretical and empirical literature onthis issue.

While this paper relies on that literature, too, it tailors its discussion to SSA countries to respond to the following questions: Why it is important to reduce energysubsidies?

What are the difficulties involved in energy subsidy reform?

How best can a subsidy reform be implemented? This paper uses various sources of information on SSA countries: quantitative assessments, surveys, and individual (but standardized) case studies.
