The role of the energy-gender nexus in accelerating renewable energy (RE) deployment in ASEAN remains underexplored. Current gender disparities severely impede the enhancement of women’s roles and opportunities in the renewable energy sector, and hinder women’s contributions to the energy transition.
To address this, the ASEAN Centre for Energy ACE with technical support from the United Nations Environment Programme has developed the ASEAN RE-Gender Roadmap to chart a pathway to incorporate gender-responsive policy in renewable energy development in ASEAN towards an inclusive and productive policy while ensuring environmental sustainability of the energy sector.
