Pakistan's Energy Crisis: Breaking the Chain

Feb 07, 2013

Pakistan's troubled energy sector has hampered the country's economic development, and spawned a major power crisis. A new monograph, written by Ziad Alahdad, proposes a way forward: the implementation of an integrated energy planning and policy formulation (IEP) and the institutional structure that supports it. A main feature of IEP is the restructuring of policy institutions to reverse the unchecked fragmentation that has occurred over the years--in other words, the IEP calls for the consolidation of policy institutions into a single ministry of energy.

Alahdad is an energy expert and former senior World Bank official. He has worked with the Asia Program on a number of occasions on energy-related issues.

The Wilson Center acknowledges the contribution of the Pakistan Institute of Development Economics in the preparation of the attached monograph.
