Reflection on 'Energy transition and gender in the informal street food sector in Africa' by M. Diouf et al.

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

This reflection calls for contextualising the energy constraints faced by women
in the informal street food sector in Africa. Drawing on the paper by Diouf
et al., which points to the prevalence of a range of different scenarios in urban
Africa and the need for policies to reflect their local situations, this reflection
presents three problem scenarios of gender inequality in respect of energy
access and their logical policy implications.
