This white paper was commissioned by USAID under the USAID/IUCN Gender Equality for Climate Change Opportunities (GECCO)* initiative. Developed through a literature review and individual consultations with experts and validated through an experts’ workshop, this white paper considers the most recent work on the intersection of gender and energy.

*The former Gender Equality for Climate Change Opportunities (GECCO) initiative is now part of a broader program, Advancing Gender in the Environment (AGENT), which aims to improve development outcomes by strengthening environmental programing through gender integration and achieving gender equality outcomes.
