Description
On 8 September 2021, 8.00-9.30 AM EST (2-3:30 PM CEST), UN-Energy and partners will co-host this deep-dive workshop on the gender-energy nexus.

Women have a critical role to play in achieving SDG7, but barriers such as access to sustainable energy, education, finance, career advancement and insufficient involvement in decision-making processes prevent them from leading, participating in, and benefitting from the sustainable energy transition on a level playing field with men. Moreover, ensuring access to clean, modern, and affordable sustainable energy solutions for women is a fundamental element of a just and inclusive energy transition.

This workshop will:

Provide an overview of the Energy Compact process and background Explore the need and opportunities for catalyzing action by all stakeholders towards mainstreaming a gender transformative approach in energy transition strategies, initiatives and energy compacts Present the idea and explore the process of creating and registering an Energy Compact to catalyze action to enhance gender equality and empower women for SDG7 that is measurable and actionable

This deep-dive workshop will be an opportunity to call for strong political will, international cooperation, and increased funding and investment for catalyzing individual and collaborative action to accelerate a just, inclusive and sustainable energy transition, in which both women and men can equally lead, participate and benefit.
