Stakeholders asserted that to promote gender parity, successive governments have to encourage Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, STEM education to allow students to acquire critical and independent thinking skills and become creative in solving problems.

The Chief of Staff, Akosua Frema Osei Opare said promoting clean energy must be the priority of women in the energy sector.

According to her, women represent 50.7 percent of Ghana’s population and are important energy consumers due to their traditional role in household chores and the agri-food sector, therefore, stressing the need for women to be interested in clean cooking initiatives.
