Energy policies failing to reach women are thus exacerbating potential climate risks for them. In addition, gender inequalities limit women’s access to finance streams, information or training for using sustainable energy sources. Taking a gender lens approach is thus crucial for minimizing such bias and ensuring equal access to energy for both women and men
