This training module is the third of a series of modules on gender and climate change for a range of practitioners and policy makers in Africa. It provides basic information and learning tools needed to understand, advocate and influence climate change polices at the regional, national, and community levels so that they integrate gender perspectives. In particular it focuses on gender and energy, and covers the following themes: gender-differentiated aspects of rural energy production, use and distribution in Africa; climate stress on the energy sector and the gendered results of these changes; and the need and options for the integration of gender perspectives in energy policy and the development and deployment of sustainable energy technologies.
