Gender and energy for sustainable development : a toolkit and resource guide



An important reason for the focus on gender and energy is that in many developing countries women are particularly affected by lack of accessible and affordable energy services due to their traditional roles, household responsibilities, and low social and political status. Better understanding of differences in the ways men and women use energy in various cultures and locations can promote greater gender equity and empowerment of women, as well as enhance the effectiveness of energy projects, poverty programmes, and overall sustainable development activities.
