SAWIE at the Pre-COP “All4Climate – Italy 2021″ Programme, co-organised by International Energy Agency (IEA) and Council on Energy, Environment and Water (CEEW)

Building on the findings of the Global Commission on People-Centred Clean Energy Transitions, this virtual event explored the ways in which clean energy transitions can positively address gender equity and inclusion goals, and avoid disproportionate impacts on marginalised groups. The event also included a focus on the context of emerging economies, in which women are often disproportionately affected by a lack of energy access or reliance on more polluting forms of energy.

SAWIE Chair, Ms. Vaishali Nigam Sinha, joined as a speaker on the expert panel discussion and highlighted that the idea and goal is to bridge the gender gap in the energy sector by looking at structural barriers that inhibit women from being at the heart of the sector.
