This project takes a “clean energy supply” approach to contribute new knowledge on how public policy can foster decent work and sustainable livelihoods for workers, particularly women and youth engaged in micro, small and medium enterprises, clean energy generation and associated value chains.
While the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) is experiencing significant impacts of climate change, countries also need to limit greenhouse gas emissions and improve efficiency in energy use and production.
