Energy and agricultural technologies for women's economic advancement

30.05.2018 / Created by (EMWF)

This research explores what it takes for technology initiatives to reach and economically benefit the invisible market of women through market-based strategies that have the potential for achieving scale and financial sustainability. It explores the perspectives and insights of energy and agricultural experts from around the world and investigates how a selection of programs takes women’s needs into account and how the programs’ efforts translate into economically advancing women and achieving business goals.

The research builds on another ICRW’s paper, entitled Bridging the Gender Divide: How Technology Can Advance Women Economically, which made the case for how technologies can create pathways for strengthening women’s economic opportunities. Specifically, it showed how integrating the needs of women in the technology development lifecycle can trigger a chain of events that leads to economic advancement and, eventually, to wider social and economic benefits.
