Gender Mainstreaming in Rural Electrification Programmes

Gender mainstreaming in rural electrification projects can identify practical activities that can be undertaken as part of the construction phase or during operations. This technical brief provides guidance on possible gender issues and entry points in rural electrification projects as well as actions that can help ensure equitable access to the benefits of rural electrification for women and men. It is based on ENERGIA’s experiences with assisting rural electrification agencies in Botswana, Senegal, Kenya and Uganda
