Many developing countries have been hard hit by the double "energy crisis" of threatened fuelwood supply and the increasing burden of oil imports. During the last decade energy provision has become a vitally important issue so that energy is now regarded as a basic factor of production ranking in importance with classical components: land, labour and capital. Careful and innovative energy planning has become a necessity for successful development. This volume contains the first part of a series of nine energy country studies, prepared by the Beijer Institute as background material for the SADCC Regional Energy Seminar in Harare, December 1982. This series report on the methodology and findings of the Kenyan and SADCC studies.
