Knowledge Note

This assessment brought to you by a collaboration between USAID and IUCN has been conducted to identify and understand the degree to which gender considerations have been addressed in energy policies, plans and strategies worldwide. Findings offer insights into the ways in which governments are recognizing gender considerations in the context of their energy policymaking and planning and trends with respect to key cross-cutting gender issues and regional comparisons.

The assessment was developed under the Gender Equality for Climate Change Opportunities (GECCO) initiative, a five-year collaboration between IUCN and USAID that aims to leverage advancements in women’s empowerment and gender equality through, and for, the benefit of climate change and development outcomes.
