PDF's Work on Gender
Description: The EUEI PDF recognises the full potential of women as agents of change in a broad energy sector through:
Active integration of women into advisory and decision-making processes and governance structures at national and regional level
Consideration of the specific role of women in energy access services by particularly focusing on those that primarily affect women e.g. household cooking, heating, post-harvest processing, and household productive activities.
Inclusion of women in capacity building and training activities, especially in areas where women have been underrepresented in the past e.g. producing, marketing and repairing solar home systems.
In close collaboration with Energia, the EUEI PDF compiled a set of tools for the active inclusion of women in energy and development projects. Also in this cooperation, the EUEI PDF developed Gender Briefing Notes highlighting the relationship between gender issues and energy topics for its staff and partners. In project development, implementation and support activities, EUEI PDF project managers apply these tools to ensure equal benefits for men and women as well as a gender sensitive approach in all project phases.
Based on experience, specific gender tools have been designed for projects related to biomass energy strategy, renewable energy policy and rural electrification agencies.

Description: Gender equality is central to achieving a sustainable and resilient future for Pacific islands. This toolkit is designed to support climate change practitioners working in national governments, non-governmental organisations, regional and international organisations, integrate gender into all aspects of policy, programming and project work.

The toolkit is divided into four modules, which can be read in conjunction or used as standalone documents for practitioners seeking guidance on a specific topic.

Module 1 - This introductory module explains why gender is a critical consideration in climate change programmes, projects and strategies, defines the key approaches and concepts, and clarifies some common misconceptions.

Module 2 - Introduces the different phases of a typical climate change programme/project cycle, identifies potential entry-points for integrating gender perspectives in each phase and also includes a generic gender checklist that may be applied to programmes and projects.

Module 3 - Focuses on the links between gender and climate change in specific sectors and uses sector relevant case studies to demonstrate how gender perspectives can be applied in the identification and assessment of climate change problems and solutions. Key gender indicators are also provided to support monitoring and evaluation.

Module 4 - This final module examines gender in relation to climate change governance. It discusses how to integrate gender considerations in institutional arrangements, policy coordination and negotiations, and climate change finance.
