Leusden, 4th August, 2014 – ENERGIA, the International Network on Gender & Energy invites Expressions of Interests (EOIs) from qualified research teams to participate in its Gender and Energy Research programme. In line with its commitment to the Sustainable Energy for All Initiative and with the financial assistance of the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID), the ENERGIA International Network on Gender and Sustainable Energy has established a five-year research programme to generate and analyse empirical evidence on the links between gender, energy and poverty, and to translate this evidence into recommendations for energy policy and programmes.
For the nearly twenty years since its foundation, ENERGIA has worked with governments, donors, civil society and public and private sector energy organisations to incorporate a gender approach in policy and practice. It is against this background that ENERGIA seeks to commission research to generate empirical evidence that is rigorous, has scientific legitimacy, buy-in by policymakers in the energy sector and yields generalisable and policy-relevant findings that have a good likelihood of being replicable and scalable.
