Webinar – Technology and data collection: Allies in women-centric energy access programmes

A webinar is organized by  IUCN’s GECCO initiative and ENERGIA

Energy is fundamental to development. Energy access interventions are designed to reduce energy poverty and have the opportunity of doing so while also addressing gender gaps–i.e., increasing well-being and lifting women and their families out of poverty. As a result of this rationale there has been a surge of women-centered clean energy access programs in recent years. But how do we know for sure which are the impacts of these interventions? The key is data collection and strengthening monitoring and evaluation (M&E) systems. The introduction of technological tools has an important role to play in the energy access projects. This webinar is an introduction to using technology for data collection and gives an overview of available tools.


  • Strengthening M&E systems through gender-responsive data collection and analysis – Lucia Fort, ESMAP/World Bank Group
  • Impact Tracking Technologies and their integration into M&E systems – Tomohiro Hamakawa and Lana Kristanto, Kopernik
  • Tracking gender indicators in clean energy projects – Abby Mackey, Solar Sister

The webinar will be moderated by Ana Rojas, IUCN GGO
