Palestinian women GROW own sustainable energy

A group of Palestinian women reclaimed souvereinty over their energy supply. Together they engaged with the Ministry of Energy, the Ministry of Women and the Ministry of Economy to advocate for the empowerment of women in the energy sector and for gender sensitive energy laws. They discussed the obstacles women face in this sector and what opportunities could empower them. This resulted in the Ministry of Energy launching a new project called ‘GROW’, meant to support initiatives by women in the area of renewable energy.
