AFREA Gender and Energy Workshop Proceedings | Dakar, Senegal

The AFREA gender and energy program has been supporting activities in six countries: Senegal, Mali, Benin, Tanzania, Kenya and Zambia. As part of this work, a Gender and Energy Capacity Building and Knowledge Exchange workshop was held in Dakar, Senegal, on April 7–9, 2014.

The workshop provided a forum for country counterparts to document the lessons and approaches on integrating gender issues into their energy programs under the first phase of AFREA (AFREA I), and to begin planning activities under AFREA II.

The workshop was attended by about 60 participants, including representatives from the six pilot countries; project beneficiaries from the Senegal Sustainable and Participatory Energy Management (PROGEDE II) project; and representatives of development partner institutions from ENERGIA, UN Women, the Embassy of Denmark, ECOWAS Center for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ECREE) Gender Program, and the Netherlands Development Organization (SNV).
