ECOWAS Policy for Gender Mainstreaming in Energy Access

The purpose of the ECOWAS Policy for Gender Mainstreaming in Energy Access is to provide policy-makers with instrumental and human rights based indicators and rigorous arguments to align energy interventions with principles of gender equality. Moreover, the policy aims to use a gender mainstreaming framework as a means for Energy Ministries to achieve energy access goals in a way that leverages the role of women as energy users, community members, business owners, and policymakers. The policy aims at ensuring universal energy access in the ECOWAS Region by meeting specific targets by 2030 that are set forth in the Policy Implementation Plan.
