Description of the project: The SEED project implements a holistic and gender-responsive approach to energy transition in Jordan, providing technical training to women and empowering local communities to adapt to climate change and advocate for climate solutions. Women energy ambassadors learn to install solar water heaters and photovoltaic systems, thereby challenging gender-stereotypes in the male-dominated sector of energy efficiency and renewable energy (EE&RE). SEED also facilitates women’s participation in the labour force thanks to individual coaching, innovation grants, and employment opportunities. The SEED team conducts awareness-raising and national advocacy activities to scale-up the project’s impacts.
