Hivos is an international organisation that seeks new solutions to persistent global issues. With smart projects in the right places, we oppose discrimination, inequality, abuse of power and the unsustainable use of our planet’s resources. Counterbalance alone, however, is not enough. Our primary focus is achieving structural change. This is why we cooperate with innovative businesses, citizens and their organisations. We share a dream with them of sustainable economies and inclusive societies.
Established in 1996, ENERGIA, the International Network on Gender and Sustainable Energy, is an informal network that brings together institutions and individuals, to work towards a shared vision that “women and men have equal and equitable access to, and control over, sustainable energy services as an essential human right to development”. This is aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals’ (SDGs) ambitions: to ensure universal access to energy (SDG 7), to achieve gender equality and empower women (SDG 5), to eradicate poverty (SDG 1), and to promote environmentally and climate-related sustainable development (SDG 13).
