This Guide was developed to help support the policy making process in countries interested in pursuing a more gender inclusive energy sector. It is a blueprint primarily based on the experience gained in the development of the first-ever policy on gender mainstreaming for energy access that was adopted in 2017 by Heads of State in ECOWAS Member States. It distills key elements from the ECOWAS process and methodology used by the ECOWAS Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ECREEE) in driving the development and adoption of the policy. Governments may seek to replicate or adapt the ECOWAS process in the context of their own countries and/or regions.
