Promoting gender mainstreaming in the West African energy sector

Earlier this year, Partners for Innovation and MDF West Africa provided trainings to government and non-government organizations active in West Africa’s energy sector.

In this project, we focused on promoting equality between men and women in the 15 ECOWAS-countries by providing key stakeholders with the tools to strengthen the position of women in the energy sector. By supporting representatives from the energy ministries, as well as NGO’s and business support organizations with strong track records in private sector capacity development, we set out to mainstream gender-sensitivity in both the public policy and private project development simultaneously.

This project was carried out on behalf of the Climate Technology Centre & Network (CTCN), who recently released a video to highlight the importance of gender mainstreaming in the energy sector.
