ESMAP has launched a new program on social inclusion in the energy sector, with a specific initial focus on gender. Social Inclusion refers to the development of institutions, policies, social norms and behaviors that provide an opportunity for previously marginalized groups to increase their voice and access to assets.

Under its previous Business Plan, ESMAP and AFREA have supported pilot approaches on gender mainstreaming in Senegal, Mali, Benin, Tanzania and Kenya and aims to expand this experience in the coming years.
