Winnergy Initiative – Sustainable Development Gender Perspective

RCREEE views gender mainstreaming as a critical component in a successful energy transition. Including more women into the sustainable energy supply chain brings us many steps closer to achieving an essential part of the sustainable development goals.

In line with SDG5 and SDG7, RCREEE initiated its women in energy taskforce in 2017 and sought partnerships with prominent Gender Mainstreaming supporters such as GWNet and Fredrich-Ebert Stiftung.

RCREEE focuses on raising awareness in its Member States to the importance of prioritizing gender mainstreaming within the energy agenda and providing capacity building activities to females in the field from the region. We are currently planning to engage in Gender data and research by working with our member states and to engage the private sector.

We are open to all partnerships and collaborations to advance the gender agenda and achieve energy transition.
