This report provides powerful evidence of how women are often not given an equal chance to take advantage of global trends in closing energy access gaps.
In Latin America and the Caribbean over 50% of users of public transportation systems are women. However, not all of our systems are designed with the needs and perspectives of women in mind.
This study aims to increase international attention on the gender equality dimensions of energy access in the run-up to Rio+20 and contribute to the Sustainable Energy for All (SE4ALL) initiative and its goal of ensuring universal access to modern energy services by 2030.
This paper explores the linkages between gender, energy, and poverty and the empirical evidence on these linkages— with an emphasis on electricity and cooking energy.
This Strategic Framework for Results (2016-21) aims to provide strategic direction to the Sustainable Energy for All platform and its partners that operate on a global basis. It focuses on how to move further, faster in the coming five years towards the delivery of SEforALL’s three, 2030 objectives: Ensure universal access to modern energy services […]
Esta Guía sobre género y energía para capacitadoras(es) y gestoras(es) de políticas públicas y proyectos es un esfuerzo conjunto de apoyo a las organizaciones de la sociedad civil, grupos de mujeres e instituciones estatales y no estatales involucradas en el sector energético de América Latina, para incorporar la perspectiva de género en sus políticas y […]
The Bagepalli CDM Biogas Project involves the construction of approximately 5,500 two-cubic-metre capacity biogas digesters in households in the area (“Taluk”) of Bagepalli and other nearby Taluks in the Kolar District, Karnataka, India. The digesters, which utilise the dung of household cows, produce methane gas from the anaerobic breakdown of organic waste. The resulting methane […]
Cleaner fuels, improved efficiency and adoption of renewable energy technologies offer important possibilities for low-carbon economic development and reductions in overall greenhouse gas emissions. These possibilities are especially important for women in developing countries who currently play critical roles in supplying and managing traditional biomass fuels. The UN’s Sustainable Energy for All initiative is highlighting […]
