Abstract:The Regional Economic Communities (RECs) in Eastern and Southern Africa have been developing new energy policies and programmes aimed at reaching the UN goal of 'Clean energy for all by 2030'. The regional policies have been domesticated by member states of the RECs. Implementation programmes launched at national level are robust and producing results. Both in the policies and implementation programmes, gender issues have, however, not featured prominently. Noting this deficit, the Organisation for Social Science Research in Eastern and Southern Africa called for researchers to assess the extent to which energy policies in Eastern and Southern Africa have taken gender issues on board. This book is the product of that project. Contents: Introduction (Paschal B.
