Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

The Malawi Renewable Energy Acceleration Programme (MREAP) was funded by the Scottish Government to explore multiple yet coordinated strands of work to improve prospects for renewable energy in Malawi. The programme ran from 2012 – 2015 and had two key outcomes: improving the enabling environment for renewable energy and improving access rates to affordable and appropriate energy for poor Malawians. Much of the emphasis of MREAP has been on demonstrating and improving the model for community energy in Malawi, especially in rural areas where electricity access rates are only 1%. This overview presents a selection of the imagery, reports, and data generated from MREAP that highlights the impact that has been produced.
