Guided by the principles of just transitions and energy justice, this working paper by the Gender Expert Group of the Green Growth Knowledge Partnership (GGKP) is an analysis of existing knowledge and strategies – research, policies, procedures and programmes aiming to ensure that no one is left behind during the energy transition. It examines challenges and opportunities for financing gender-just interventions supporting the energy transition. Best practice examples will highlight the role of various actors, including local and central governments, civil society, research institutions, donors, multilaterals, financial institutions and the private sector.
The paper also showcases how different actors have effectively worked together to design and implement gender transformative actions. Building on the guiding model of the Gender-Just Transition Outcomes Framework and the review of existing models and best practices, the paper puts forward a Gender-Just Energy Transition Outcomes Matrix. The matrix identifies impact areas for enhanced gender equality and delineates relevant outcomes in gender equality along the value chain of the global energy transition.
