Gender approaches in climate compatible development: Lessons from India


This report underlines three key ideas: 1) that women are natural brokers of learning around adaptation and emissions; 2) women offer far better value for money in adaptation and resilience building measures; and 3) women build the trust that is essential to move from the current pattern of growth to new or green growth. Three key areas of inequality require direct and urgent attention from policy-makers, as well as those designing or running large projects in India: 1) the role of women in building urban resilience, not only in the 100 Smart Cities programme but a wide range of other towns in India; 2) the role of women in green and clean small businesses; and 3) the role of women in solar and mixed grid renewable energy promotion.
