Gender in the transition to sustainable energy for all. From evidence to inclusive policies



This research explored gender, energy and poverty linkages in six thematic areas identified through a review of current literature: (a) electrification, (b) productive uses of energy, (c) energy sector reform, (d) the role of the private sector in scaling up energy access, (e) the political economy of energy sector policies, and (f) women’s energy entrepreneurship. Although cooking energy was originally excluded as a theme due to overlap with other DFID-supported research, many findings relevant to cooking energy emerged in the research and are included in this report. Each of the themes was narrowed to more specific research topics; for example, the wider theme of energy sector reform was narrowed down to focus on fossil fuel subsidies. This report presents a prioritised selection of key messages and associated policy implications. Recommendations for policy development and future research are included.
