Solar for Women: Changing Lives and Igniting Possibilities


Greetings from the International Solar Alliance Secretariat.

You will kindly agree that in many remote areas across the globe, women have to face unprecedented hardships and are exposed to grave health hazards due to limited or no access to clean energy. Dependence on conventional fuels for cooking and other daily routine work puts them at constant health, security and growth risk. Not only this, sustained health issues diminish women’s ability to engage in economically productive activities thus impacting the overall socio-economic condition of communities. The lack of clean energy technologies not only has an adverse impact on health and socio-economic scenario, it also contributes significantly to climate change.     

Keeping in view the importance of the matter, the ISA is organizing a dedicated webinar themed: ‘Solar for Women; changing lives and igniting possibilities', on 8 March 2021 from 15:00 Hrs to 18:00 Hrs (IST). Through this webinar, ISA aims to highlight the role - solar energy can play in bringing positive change in the lives of women, inspiring change and encouraging investment in gender-responsive projects across the globe. 

 Invitation to attend the Webinar has already been sent to the ISA's National Focal Points in the Member countries and to the ISA's Contact Points in their Delhi-based Missions (copy attached). Kindly also find attached to this email a Concept Note and the draft Agenda of the Webinar.

  May we kindly request your Excellency, to disseminate the information on the Webinar among the Stakeholders in the country of your accreditation to ensure maximum participation. The concerned officials from your Mission may also register to join the Webinar, if interested.
