Gender and Energy: South-North Perspectives


Clancy, J. S. 2001. “Gender and Energy: South-North Perspectives.” Paper presented at the International Solar Energy Society World Solar Congress, Adelaide, November 25-30.

Author: J. S. Clancy


In this presentation, I would like to explore some of the current thinking on development, what the implications are for the energy sector, and then to examin the gender implications of the energy-poverty nexus. Following on from this, I would like to look at the role Renewable Energy Technologies (RETs) have to play in this arena. I also intend to make a few remarks on gender and energy issues in the North, before concluding with suggestions on how to move forward.
