CED launched training on entrepreneurship development and renewable energy to women in Bangladesh, Cambodia, and Vietnam

February 27, 20220

CED-BracU is currently working on a UN Environment Programme (UNEP)-funded program titled “Enhancing the Capacity and Skillsets of Potential Women Entrepreneurs toward Renewable Energy” under the “EmPower: Women for Climate Resilient Societies” project. CED will develop the women energy entrepreneurship training modules and online courses for the project which is being implemented by UNEP and the UN Women.

This project aims to contribute to the overall outcome of ‘Countries in Asia and the Pacific Implement Gender-Responsive Climate Change and Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) Actions to address key drivers of Gender-Based Vulnerabilities’. The project is being implemented in Bangladesh, Cambodia and Vietnam; and is supported by regional level activities in Asia-Pacific with the aim of increasing gender responsiveness of climate change and disaster risks reduction in the region.

The project also lends support to members states in fulfilling commitments on the Paris Agreement commitments as well as Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly SDG 5 on gender equality, SDG 7 on Energy and SDG 12 on Climate Action. The project will achieve these outcomes through the following goals, i.e., women’s groups are able to lead, participate in and influence climate change and DRR decision-making processes; Governments and key stakeholders are able to generate, analyze and use sex, age, and diversity disaggregated data to inform climate change and disaster risks and actions; enabling national climate change and DRR policy makers to integrate and enhance responsiveness to gender equality commitments; enabling women to use renewable energies to enhance climate-resilient livelihoods; incorporation of gender equality and human rights perspective in regional and policy frameworks on climate change and Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR).
