The Evidence Base for Gender and Inclusion in Sustainable Energy

Knowledge brief
Women's empowerment in the energy sector

This working paper reviews existing data and evidence on the case for gender-responsive and socially inclusive approaches to sustainable energy. It identifies data and evidence that can inform approaches to delivering Sustainable Development Goal 7 (SDG7) and the work of the SEforALL People-Centered Accelerator (PCA), as well as gaps in the evidence base. The analysis shows a general lack of gender-disaggregated data to fully inform the work of the PCA or the delivery of SDG7 and, in response, proposes possible indicators or benchmarks.
