Gender considerations in the stakeholder engagement process

Uploaded 14/10/19

On 11 October 2019, REPP hosted a webinar to lay out best practice for ensuring an effective gender-sensitive stakeholder consultation that promotes evidence-based and participatory decision making to the benefit of all.

The aim of the webinar was to help participants to:

  • acquire better knowledge and awareness of gender considerations during
    the stakeholder engagement process; and,
  • access practical tools for effective implementation.

The webinar was primarily aimed at renewable energy developers in Africa, but also environmental consultants, relevant government institutions and NGOs actively working in the sector.


  • Santhuri Naicker, Impact Analyst, Camco Clean Energy (on behalf of Laura Lahti, Impact Manager)
  • Virginie Le Masson, Research Associate, Gender Equality & Social Inclusion, Overseas Development Institute
  • Natasha Ezekiel, Independent Gender and Social Safeguards Consultant, Rise Sustainability Consulting

91% of participants rated the webinar as very satisfactory.
