Energy poverty is high in West Africa: less than half of the population has access to electricity and women’s potential as active participants in the energy sector has been underutilised. However, fifteen West African countries (Benin, Burkina Faso, Cape Verde, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone and Togo) are now putting women at the forefront of a new energy strategy to develop and enable increased access to climate friendly energy throughout the region.
