Like access to electricity or clean cooking, access to sustainable cooling is an energy service that is essential for achieving Sustainable Development Goal 7 (SDG7). Just as women and girls face challenges gaining access to education, healthcare and formal employment, their ability to access and benefit from the range of services that cooling provides is also limited, and a lack of access to sustainable cooling can exacerbate existing gender inequalities.

In this session, organized within the #ThisIsCool webinar series, experts will discuss the upcoming knowledge brief on Cooling for All and GenderTowards Inclusive, Sustainable Cooling Solutions, the first analysis of the gender-based impacts of a lack of access to cooling.
