Workshop: Household energy use in Agincourt area
13 - 14 July 2017
WITS Rural campus, Bushbuckridge South Africa
DataFirst and the UK Data Archive, with the MRC/Wits Agincourt Unit, have been involved in a partnership around making “big data” relevant to social science research in South Africa, in particular in the area of household energy usage. As part of this programme a team has been looking at using the Agincourt HDSS data to think about rural electrification. The purpose of this workshop is to bring together some of the preliminary results of that work and to share it with a broader group, particularly from the Agincourt Unit. It is also to think about follow-up research and funding.
