Effective advocacy enhances gender-informed approaches and encourages sector players to invest in clean energy programs that are geared at promoting the role of women in clean energy. Through close engagement and collaboration with sector players in the national government, private sector and civil society, wPOWER increases public awareness on the critical and effective roles women are playing in promoting clean energy access.
