ARE Position Paper: Women and Sustainable Energy


Achieving universal access to clean electricity is crucial to human development, as electrification not only provides lightning, but also has the potential to dramatically improve living conditions, the quality of health services and spur income-generating activities through the productive use of renewable energy. At the same time, it needs to be stressed that priorities in energy access differ between genders, and that their existing capacities to be agents of change towards these goals differ too.
