Clean Energy Education and Empowerment (C3E TCP)

The primary objectives of this initiative are to recognise and build a community of women leaders in the field of clean energy across diverse sectors; create a framework for co-operation and information sharing among participating countries; and share best practices for effective strategies to advance women in the clean energy field. The objectives will be pursued by collecting, integrating, synthesising and distributing information on promising practices and policies to engage women in clean energy careers and leadership positions.

Women make up 52% of the world population, but only 30% of science researchers globally.*
