The City of Užice is one of the cities in Serbia that is struggling with excessive air pollution. From 2022, another new measure was introduced for socially vulnerable households in the form of complete financing of old, inefficient heating devices.
The Women of Good Energy project aims to empower women employed in municipalities and cities in Serbia who deal with issues of energy or environmental protection. During the Project, propositions were prepared for gender-sensitive measures to improve energy efficiency and reduce energy poverty based on the examination of the energy needs of women employed in the public sector, as well as of energy-poor households in 4 selected cities (Kraljevo, Niš, Kragujevac and Užice).
The project is supported by the United Nations Agency for Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment in Serbia (UN Women) within the project “Key steps towards gender equality, phase II”, financed by the European Union.
