Palestinian women GROW own sustainable energy
A group of Palestinian women reclaimed souvereinty over their energy supply.

And it presents six concrete recommendations that could help governments to implement policies and practices to realise the SDGs as such that they fulfill their potential: “peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future”.
