It is our pleasure to present the 2013/2014 wPOWER Hub Annual Report. In addition to the successful establishment of the wPOWER Hub at the Wangari Maathai Institute (WMI), University of Nairobi (UON), we would like to report a number of strategic events that are highlighted in the report and have taken place within the year.
We are working closely with our partners, Green Belt Movement (GBM), MacArthur Foundation, the Global Alliance for Clean Cook stoves, CARE International, Solar Sister, Women for Women International and the Swayam Shikshan Prayog (SSP) India, to build the evidence base on women’s leadership in clean energy and climate change.
While not the primary source of climate pollution, inefficient lighting and cooking contribute negatively to climate change, personal health and the degradation of natural resources. We are proud of the strides we made this year in working to unlock the largely untapped potential of women in raising awareness of the interconnection between climate change and inefficient cooking and lighting systems.
The wPOWER Hub at the WMI will continue in the next year, to promote access and awareness of best practices on clean energy technologies through training and exchange visits.
We sincerely thank you, for your support and confidence in our work, and would like to invite you to read more about us on our website: wpower.uonbi.ac.ke.
