ENERGIA invites proposals from its National Focal Points, its WEE programme partners and other organisations, to form consortia to implement its gender and energy advocacy programme.
The United Nations General Assembly declared the decade 2014-2024 as the Decade of Sustainable Energy for All (SE4ALL). The first two years of this decade wil focus on a global campaign on energy, women, children and health.
ENERGIA is one of the civil society members on the SE4All Advisory Board, and in this role is well-positioned to advocate for the gender equality and women empowerment in the energy sector. ENERGIA has made a specific commitment to SE4ALL to contribute to women’s economic empowerment (WEE) by scaling up proven business models that strengthen the capacity of women MSEs in the last mile delivery of energy products and services and is implementing this commitment by supporting five projects in Kenya, Nigeria, Indonesia, Nepal, Tanzania, Uganda and Senegal.
To complement its WEE programme, ENERGIA will maintain its advocacy activities in order to keep women’s economic empowerment on the SE4ALL agenda and to show case how its approach contributes to the SE4ALL objective of universal access to energy for all by 2030.
ENERGIA invites proposals from its National Focal Points (see annex G), its partners in the WEE programme (see annex G) and other organisations, to form consortia to implement its gender and energy advocacy programme.
