Zimbabwe’s Renewable Energy Policy: Gaps in Gender Inclusion

01 Apr 2023  |  www.diplomat.co.zw
The article discusses the concerns raised by human rights activists regarding the exclusion and inconsistencies in Zimbabwe's energy policies, particularly in terms of women's participation and inclusion. Despite the existence of policies like the National Energy Policy and Renewable Energy Policy, gaps remain in gender responsiveness and actualizing objectives for equitable access to renewable energy. Pamela Mhlanga of the Zimbabwe Women’s Resource Centre and Network highlights the policy's limitations in recognizing the diverse roles and needs of women and girls. A 2017 assessment by the same organization found that gender mainstreaming in the policy lacks clear goals and strategies. The technical nature of the policy and energy projects also contributes to their inaccessibility and the marginalization of women's concerns. Hivos Southern Africa and the United Nations emphasize the importance of renewable energy in addressing gender disparities and the need for inclusive energy systems that consider women's voices and participation.
