Gender Dimensions of Renewable Energy Financing
24 February 2016 - 24 February 2016
Online, Other Countries
The new Paris Agreement sends a strong message to the world to move towards implementation and achieve effective mitigation actions. With energy production and consumption accounting for two-thirds of global greenhouse gas emissions, its clear that this mitigation would require an increase in renewable energy investments. Moreover, the international community also agreed to double the percentage of renewable energy worldwide as one of the commitments under the Sustainable Development Goals. The transition to low carbon energy systems requires significant investments in capital stocks and infrastructure over the next 10-15 years. Bringing a diversity of perspectives to the investment decision process, including women and men, is important to ensuring the energy pathways finance reflect the priorities and vision of society as a whole. This webinar will explore the gender perspectives of renewable energy financing and understand where the potential is to influence financial flows for renewable energy in ways that empower women, as well as men, to be part of a clean energy future, and will explore what difference having women at the table could make in designing that future. The Gender Equality for Climate Change Opportunities (GECCO) initiative is a five-year program launched by USAID and IUCNs Global Gender Office in 2014. GECCOs overall goal is to leverage advancements in womens empowerment and gender equality through, and for, the benefit of climate change and development outcomes. Through its series of webinars, GECCO aims at increasing knowledge and sensitization of key stakeholders in the energy and mitigation sectors as a means to advance womens empowerment.
