Economies are more likely to grow sustainably when men and women fully participate as employees, entrepreneurs, consumers, community stakeholders and leaders. Improved access to energy can improve the quality of women’s and men’s lives in many ways, including time savings due to electrification, lighting for reading and access to entertainment via radios and televisions; and access to new jobs and improved livelihoods through energy services, infrastructure and technologies.
This self-paced course has been developed for social development and energy specialists, policy makers, practitioners, and members of civil society interested in learning about the linkages between gender equality and energy using recent research, data and country level experiences.
Participants can take this course at their own pace either in one sitting or through various sessions. Please expect to spend 3-5 hours to complete the six modules which consist of video presentations, readings, quizzes, and interactive problem-solving exercises.
