A Virtuous Cycle: How Clean Cooking Projects Can Empower Women and Help Close Gender Gaps
The World Bank’s Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP), on the occasion of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW66), invites you to attend the event: A Virtuous Cycle: How Clean Cooking Projects Can Empower Women and Help Close Gender Gaps.
This event is part of the World Bank Group’s yearlong Gender Equality and Development +10: Accelerate Equality initiative. It will focus on the virtuous cycle that the adoption of clean cooking can trigger for women: better health, better economic opportunities, increased participation in community affairs, leadership, and overall better gender equality. It will give a voice to representatives from the public and private sector who will share encouraging stories about women able to transition to clean cooking and will discuss evidence on what works to enhance gender equality through specific interventions in the clean cooking area.
The event will be the platform for the launching of the new ESMAP report on gender and clean cooking entitled: Opening Opportunities, Closing Gaps: Advancing Gender-Equal Benefits in Clean Cooking Operations.
The event agenda and list of speakers will be circulated in the coming days.
