Rural Women Energy Security

The RUWES Initiative Stakeholders workshop is an annual event organised to address and sensitise the rural women who are the end users of these clean cookstoves and who also are most vulnerable to the hazardous effects of domestic utilising fossil and wood fuel. The workshop brings together beneficiaries of the initiative, technical partners and manufacturers of clean energy items. The workshop is a feedback mechanism and a means of involving these beneficiaries in the design of the clean energy technologies.
