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.
Este primer webinar de la serie de GECCO Energía para Latinoamérica tiene como objetivo plantear la base por la cual es necesario tomar en cuenta consideraciones de género en el sector energético.
This report focuses on women’s role in the expanding market for modern off-grid lighting. In the context of access to energy and lighting, the aim of this work is to identify whether there are any women-specific opportunities in the off- grid lighting market that could enhance product profitability while also improving lives.
The objective of the report is to review the literature on the links between energy access, welfare, and gender in order to provide evidence on where gender considerations in the energy sector matter and how they might be addressed.

As the global community increasingly recognizes both the urgency of responding to the climate crisis and the need for ensuring gender-responsive action, women are already leading the way.
USAID and IUCN organized a Gender and Renewable Energy Workshop on September 3-5, 2014, in the Washington, D.C. metro area. The event convened a diverse group of 44 experts under the umbrella of gender, large-scale renewable energy, and climate change mitigation. The workshop was geared toward building new knowledge and guidance on gender considerations in low emissions development planning and the renewable energy sector beyond the household level, with the following objectives: increase awareness and understanding on gender and large-scale renewable energy and low emissions development planning; identify key entry points and opportunities; define future actions at the international, regional, and national levels; and identify knowledge and capacity gaps and potential avenues for closing them.
