EmPower Women for Climate Resilient Societies is a project jointly initiated by UN Women and UN Environment, with the support of the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency. The project focuses on three countries in Asia: Bangladesh, Vietnam, and Cambodia.
Since 2019, Nexus for Development has been working with the EmPower Project in Cambodia alongside UN Environment Programme (UNEP – the financer) and the Cambodian National Committee for Sub-National Democratic Development Secretariat (NCDDs – co-implementer) to enable women to use renewable energy as economic resources for resilient livelihoods.
In 2021, we engaged in feasibility studies to evaluate the six preselected livelihood interventions identified during the scoping and feasibility studies.
- Solar individual water pump for vegetable cultivation
- Solar community water pump for rice cultivation
- Solar chicken incubation
- Clean energy products retail
- Solar electricity for clean water social enterprise
- Cold storage technology
