Turning Information into Empowerment: Strengthening gender and energy networking in Africa

This report is the result of two and a half years work within the TIE-ENERGIA project "Turning Information into Empowerment". TIE-ENERGIA has been pioneering in laying the groundwork for mainstreaming energy and gender with a comprehensive capacity-building initiative across Africa in terms of the scope and the practitioners targeted. Gender-sensitive energy policies and programmes fostered by this action are expected to target disadvantaged groups among target populations, and improve the design and efficiency of implementation and thereby the outcomes of energy programmes and projects.
