initiative. "Creating Conditions for Gender Equity in Rural Energy Projects: Experience in Productive Uses of Renewable Energy in Guatemala" has been undertaken by Fundación Solar (Solar Foundation), a private development organization established in Guatemala in 1993. This case study documents the ways in which an energy project, in this case for climate change mitigation, can integrate gender considerations in its implementation phase, even if these considerations were not made explicit in project design. Additionally, this study demonstrates the way in which including a gender perspective can increase the benefits generated by raising the quality of and access to renewable energy. This can be done by: (i) Supporting effective women’s participation in community decision-making fora, (ii) increasing productive activities for women and men through energy interventions, and (iii) enabling women to participate in non-traditional roles.
