Gender Mainstreaming in UAIMES-PR Programme
In August 2009, TaTEDO signed a one-year contract with ETC Foundation to mainstream gender into the Upscaling Access to Integrated Modern Energy Services for Poverty Reduction (UAIMES-PR) programme. The gender mainstreaming component of the UAIMES-PR programme intended to ensure that the implementation of the programme was gender-sensitive and that outcomes were equityoriented, for the benefit of both men and women. It was also intended to address gender issues in the organisational, institutional, and corporate environment in which energy projects and programmes are developed and implemented.
