The Accelerator Programme was established in 2020 to help recruit more women Energy Experts, maximize the impact of our Energy activities, and increase our ability to reach vulnerable women with Energy-related information. It started with five female junior Energy experts matched with NORCAP senior Energy experts and partner Energy staff (where available) in five international agencies namely; UNHCR, FAO*, WFP, IOM and NRC. This provided an opportunity for meaningful engagement and ensured that the experts are supported in the articulation and implementation of system change strategies as well as accelerating their path to largescale impact.
