Webinar: Reaping the benefits of energy access: Gender, policy, and practice

Date/s: 22/06/2017
Location:

In this webinar, we’ll be joined by several speakers who will speak about their experience with gender & energy policy and practice in the context of rural development. We’ll be guided by questions such as – what must still be done at the policy level to ensure that women and girls have access to energy – and that they benefit from this access? (In terms of economic benefits, education, health, etc.). How can we ensure via policy that men, women, and children benefit from energy access & achieve positive outcomes for all communities / family? In practice, what has been achieved thus far in communities? What must still be done? How can national energy / gender policies best be implemented at the local level and encourage women’s entrepreneurship and leadership?
