As part of the implementation of the AfDB’s Ten‑Year Strategy (2013-2022), its Gender Strategy (2014-2018) and the New Deal on Energy for Africa (a transformative partnership to light up and power Africa by 2025), the Office of the Special Envoy on Gender conducted a desk review of the gender dimensions of renewable energy initiatives. This work supports the Light Up and Power Africa dimension of the High-Fives, as well as two pillars of the Bank’s Gender Strategy: (1) Women’s Economic Empowerment and (2) Knowledge Management and Capacity Building Using Research and Advocacy.
