RCREEE is very pleased to join forces with the Amman based Regional Climate and Energy Project MENA at Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) building the capacities of the Tunisian and the Lebanese public sector female professionals. Aiming to increase the share of women working and advancing in sustainable energy field in the MENA region. RCREEE with the support of FES Regional Climate and Energy Project MENA will organize four tailored training programs dedicated to public sector female employees on ‘Advanced Renewable Energy’ and ‘Green Financing’ topics under the support of the National Agency for Energy Management (ANME) in Tunisia and The Lebanese Center for Energy Conservation (LCEC) in Lebanon.
Over the past decade, the Arab region witnessed a significant progress in the adoption of renewable energy and energy efficiency solutions; yet clean energy sector still misses the full benefits of a diverse workforce. IRENA Gender Survey 2019 finding also shows that women holding STEM-related positions in the Sustainable Energy Field represent only 9% of the total Sustainable Energy workforce.
Accordingly, the training programs aimed to equip female professionals with the knowledge and skills required to understand RE projects development and implementation in terms of feasibility studies, regulatory frameworks, and procurement. Also, they provided the needed knowledge to understand green finance fundamentals and its relation to the sustainable development goals and how to access climate and sustainable energy finance.
