Kopernik "Wonder Woman"
Fiorella Benedetti is conducting research in Eastern Indonesia to bring Kopernik’s Wonder Woman initiative to scale. This intervention reduces poverty by distributing clean energy technologies (solar lights, clean cook stoves, and water filters, etc.) to people in remote Indonesian villages, where access to electricity and affordable cooking fuel is extremely limited. At the same time, it empowers the women in these communities who serve as retailers and promoters of the products. Using a mix of quantitative and qualitative tools, Fiorella is designing and implementing an operational evaluation to diagnose the gender gaps and technological deficits to assess the most efficient way to scale up the initiative successfully.
