This project aims to improve gender equality in the renewable energy sector in Small Island Developing States (SIDS). The project supports activities that increase employment opportunities for women, and the productive use of energy for women’s enterprises and livelihoods. The project also focuses on generating evidence on gender disparities in employment, productivity and related aspects. This is one of four programs under the Canada-World Bank Clean Energy and Forests Climate Facility. A portion of the project’s activities directly supports gender equality for projects under the Renewable Energy in SIDS program.
