Two questions the GENS Team frequently get asked when we mention the name of the Africa-UK Trilateral Research Chair, Mainstreaming Gender for Energy Security In Poor Urban Environments are:

(i) What do you mean by “mainstreaming gender”?

(ii) What do you mean by “energy security” OR “energy insecurity”?

As such, the GENS Team has published its first co-authored paper, which highlights what we mean by three keywords in the Trilateral Chair, namely: mainstreaming gender, energy security, and poor urban environments.

The paper was published in the Energy Research & Social Science, and international Journal with an impact factor of 4.771.

The GENS Team aim to communicate and clarify these keywords to the diverse stakeholders who we are engaging in the research process.
