Zambia Gender and Energy Mainstreaming Strategy 2011 -2013
The Department of Energy (DOE) in the Ministry of Energy and Water Development of Zambia commissioned a report on a strategy for mainstreaming of gender concerns into energy policy. The resulting report authored by ENERGIA consists of the following parts:
Capacity Building in Energy Efficiency for Households and Forum for Energy Service Providers. Zambia, 2010.
The Zambia Gender and Energy Network received funds from the ENERGIA International Network which were used to implement a capacity building programme for households and energy service providers in 2010. Two workshops were conducted for households and energy service providers in Lusaka on 1 -3 September and 14 October 2010, respectively. The aim of the capacity building programme is to assess the current energy and energy efficiency awareness programmes undertaken by the major players in the provision of energy services at the household level.
Networking Strategy for the Zambia Gender and Energy Network. 2010.
The Zambia Gender and Energy Network (ZGEN), the National Focal Point organization, is housed at the Department of Energy under the Ministry of Energy and Water Development. The network’s overall objective is to “engender and empower” women so that they play an active role in energy planning and decision making. In 2010 ENERGIA supported ZGEN in a seed funding project aimed at strengthening the network and increasing awareness to the network and to gender and energy issues.
Established in 2000, ENERGIA Africa is a network of men and women whose common goal is to create equal opportunity and access to relevant energy resources for the poor.
