This week we hear from Akansha Saklani from the World Resources Institute. If you haven’t heard of the WRI before you’re not alone, the program was news to Steven. Listen in as Steven chats with Akansha about the very important work she is doing through the Energy Access Exlorer Program at WRI. Akansha leads the creation of energy access maps that show electrical data in India, and other parts of the world, with the aim of improving the service delivery outcomes and reach UN sustainable development goals. Learn how the WRI works with municipalities and communities to bring electricity to the billions who do not have stable access.

The Geomob podcast is hosted by Ed Freyfogle, co-founder of OpenCage, and Steven Feldman, of KnowWhere Consulting.

Every week we discuss themes from the geo industry, interview Geomob speakers, and provide regular updates about our own projects.
