Skip to: Raising our voice: Increasing visibility of gender in energy

Energia Advocacy website

Building on the achievements and the urgent need to enhance the information available on gender and energy, ENERGIA initiated a second phase in July 1999. During Phase 2, ENERGIA built the capacity of the network, started collecting and analysing data on gender and energy, supported women and men willing to build their knowledge on gender and energy and became an advocacy and advisory service provider.

ENERGIA advocacy activities aimed to raise awareness on the linkages between gender and energy access among key actors working in the energy sector and to strengthen the skills needed for advocacy and lobbying. ENERGIA’s vision was to engage with and amplify the voices of experts from different countries in Asia and Africa, in order to influence changes in the processes of the energy sector, thereby contributing to gender justice.
