Call for Expressions of Interest on Gender and Energy Innovation Facility in Nepal – Introductory Webinar

2nd February 2021

Do you work in Nepal? Do you have an innovative idea to address gender challenges in energy access and/or clean cooking?

Join our webinar on February 10, 2021 and find out how we could support you!

HivosENERGIAEnergising Development (EnDev) and Modern Energy Cooking Services (MECS) have recently established a Gender and Energy Innovation Facility with the objective to stimulate innovations at the gender and energy access nexus, including on clean and modern cooking.

A number of grants, amounting to up to 25,000 EUR per project, are available for a selected number of local projects that in 3 to 12 months intend to test innovative solutions and approaches to address persisting gender barriers in the access to clean energy.

The Facility is especially looking for innovations on:

  • gender and energy entrepreneurship and employment
  • gender and energy in the care economy
  • gender in energy policy and practice.

After a successful launch in Kenya and Tanzania we are now launching the Facility in Nepal.

We are particularly encouraging the participation of unusual players in the development sector, out-of-the-box thinkers and those who dare to experiment without being afraid to fail.

Join the webinar to learn more about:

  • the Facility, its partners and its objectives
  • the activities and services provided
  • the process and timeline to submit your innovative expression of interest and apply for a grant

Please note that the webinar and all activities of the Gender and Energy Innovation Facility are held in English.
