2014 Gender Mainstreaming Report
About the Report
Since long, gender mainstreaming has been part of UNDP’s policy, and the Environment and Energy Group is committed to strengthening gender mainstreaming in all of its programmes. There continues to be a need to ‘demystify’ the term gender mainstreaming, especially in technical areas like environment and energy, for its practitioners to accept and internalize the relevance of integrating gender for sustainable and meaningful outcomes. The report sheds light on the goal of gender mainstreaming in the environment and energy context to widen the range of options and livelihoods available to women, as well as men, and to promote equitable and sustainable human development for all.
