WoMin is a women-led regional alliance fighting destructive natural resource extraction and proposing a just development agenda for African women. WoMin is pleased to officially launch Women Building Power.
Women Building Power is a cutting-edge and developing collection of research, information materials, and tools. It forms the knowledge hub of an emerging African women-led grassroots driven campaign on Fossil Fuels, Energy and Climate Justice. The resources will support grassroots organising, strategy development, and advocacy at all levels. Available in English, French, Portuguese and Zulu on our website here.
Women Building Power presents:
- Seven information booklets on women and energy. Four booklets address simple renewable energy technologies that women can use to deal with the daily challenges of energy poverty and organise in their communities for the wider changes needed to achieve energy and climate justice.
- A popular paper, ‘Women Building Power: Towards Climate and Energy Justice for Women in Africa’ which provides a sweeping overview of energy and climate change in Africa from an eco-feminist perspective. This is the first of a series of popular research papers, which will include national energy policy analysis in a minimum of four countries, a geopolitical ecofeminist analysis of renewable energy policy and key investment frameworks in Africa, and a set of case studies on alternative energy systems and their financing.
