A 2017 International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Global Gender Office (GGO) analysis of 192 energy frameworks found that sub-Saharan Africa is the world’s regional leader in acknowledging gender considerations in national energy frameworks. To continue to understand the extent to which gender considerations are being integrated in national energy frameworks across SSA, IUCN GGO, in coordination with Power Africa, conducted an assessment of 45 energy frameworks from 29 different SSA countries.
