Together with UNIDO, we are organizing a Vienna Energy Forum side event on 9 May. Strengthening the empirical Evidence: Gender inclusive energy policies enabling progress towards the SDGs will bring together researchers, policy makers and practitioners to reflect on the state of art of the empirical evidence on energy interventions that are delivering on gender impacts and the ones that are not.
This side event will mainly focus on the following key questions and discussion points:
- What are the differential energy related needs of women and men and what is the empirical evidence that taking a gender responsive approach leads to better (more sustainable) outcomes?
- What are the major gaps identified so far? Why is it important to address these gaps and how could this be done?
- How can we involve stakeholders, such as energy users, practitioners and policy makers in reaching the overarching objective of sustainable energy for all?
