ESMAP has launched a new program on social inclusion in the energy sector, with a specific initial focus on gender. Social Inclusion refers to the development of institutions, policies, social norms and behaviors that provide an opportunity for previously marginalized groups to increase their voice and access to assets.

Under its previous Business Plan, ESMAP and AFREA have supported pilot approaches on gender mainstreaming in Senegal, Mali, Benin, Tanzania and Kenya and aims to expand this experience in the coming years.

Based on these lessons, ESMAP has developed the following three resources:

The main activities are:
Detailed gender assessments in large energy infrastructure, and energy sector reform and pricing. Assessments for areas such as energy efficiency and small-scale infrastructure are planned.
Knowledge development and dissemination.
Training: internal and external events.
Supporting project teams.
Screening ESMAP’s own global and regional activities for gender dimensions.
