|| Affordable, reliable and sustainable energy (SDG-7) and gender equality (SDG-5), are key drivers for development and economic growth. While SDG-7 is necessary to power productive activities and enable socio-economic development, SDG-5 further catalyses progress, as women are more likely to reinvest their earnings in productive activities and vital services within their communities.
To achieve universal access by 2030, new energy access policies, business models and investments must maximise the socio-economic benefits that electricity brings, while making sure that no one is left behind.
At the intersection of gender equality, clean and affordable energy access and sustainable economic development, the connection between SDG-7 and SDG-5 offers an untapped array of innovative solutions and a pool of talents that gender blind approaches to energy access are likely to miss.
