About Lighting Global
Lighting Global is a joint IFC-World Bank program that supports the development of commercial markets for solar devices that provide modern energy services to those without reliable access to the electricity grid. Through Lighting Global, IFC and the World Bank collaborate with the Global Off-Grid Lighting Association (GOGLA), manufacturers, distributors, and other development partners to support growth of modern, off-grid energy solutions for households and micro enterprises globally. Lighting Global supports the regional market transformation programs—Lighting Africa, Lighting Asia, and Lighting MENA (Middle East and North Africa). The regional programs work along the supply chain to reduce market entry barriers and first mover risks.
