Academic Research and Theses:   2020   -   By Oliver W. Johnson, Jenny Yi-Chen Han, Anne-Louise Knight, Sofie Mortensen, May Thazin Aung, Michael Boyl, and Bernadette P. Resurrección

This paper reviews the academic literature to understand the state of knowledge on how diffusion of low carbon technologies impacts gender and social equity. The findings indicate that renewable energy projects alone cannot achieve gender and social equity, as energy interventions do not automatically tackle the structural dynamics embedded within socio-cultural and socio-economic contexts.
