The research project, ‘Exploring Factors that Enhance and restrict Women’s Empowerment through Electrification’ (EFEWEE) is supported by DFID and ENERGIA. It aims to examine the factors that enhance or restrict women's opportunities and empowerment through electrification both as users and as actors in electricity provision and will recommend policies, strategies and project design for enhancing women's empowerment.
So far the project has conducted fieldwork in Kenya, India and Nepal.
EFEWEE is organising a webinar in September to share information from literature review and findings from fieldwork in these countries.
The date and title of the webinar are yet to be finalised but please, find below a tentative agenda.
