Gender Mainstreaming Strategy - USAID Clean Power Asia

This "Gender Mainstreaming Strategy" has been developed for USAID Clean Power Asia to provide a framework in which all of the program’s work is able to actively address gender equality.

The strategy highlights key concepts associated with gender equality and mainstreaming; identifies gender issues relevant to the tasks of program; and suggests points of entry where gender may be mainstreamed into program’s activities. In addition to a desk review of key program documents, including the annual work plan, gender implementation plan, and the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) plan, the author held individual consultations with all program staff, and conducted a day-long training event for the USAID Clean Power Asia staff on greater integration of gender equality concepts into program’s tasks.

The United States Agency for International Development’s (USAID) Clean Power Asia program works with Lower Mekong countries and other Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) member states to encourage power sector investments in environmentally-friendly, renewable energy (RE) sources. The program specifically focuses on bringing greater quantities of renewable energy into the region’s electricity grids.
