Advocating for Gender Equity and Social Inclusion in Access and Utilization of Green and Inclusive Energy in Zimbabwe- HIVOS Southern Africa

Advocating for Gender Equity and Social Inclusion in Access and Utilisation of Green and Inclusive Energy in Zimbabwe project. In this project the proposed intervention is three-pronged, taking its cue from two dimensions identified in the NEP (2012), namely ensuring that “the challenge of gender equality in the energy sector becomes a visible and key concern at the policy level”, and ensuring that “all energy interventions create opportunities for women’s empowerment and gender equality at the program level”. This entailed influencing national-level policies and strategies through revitalising the critical mass of gender activists through a network (GENEZ) to articulate the issues as a collective and in relevant spaces. Capacity building on contemporary gender and energy issues in Zimbabwe shall be undertaken, coupled with tools for advocating for these issues at a national and local level, depending on the mandates of the collective. It focused on strengthening advocacy with relevant government structures, through a series of dialogues on different dimensions related to gender and renewable energies. This includes the production of technical papers (policy briefs, opinion pieces), designed to support knowledge production for the technocrats on the subject.
