Substantial analysis is needed to build frameworks for adopting a gender-sensitive approach. This includes stocktaking of the gender dimensions and actions on the ground within the energy sector, as well as identifying strategic entry points and resources for mobilizing efforts.

Building off the regional and thematic interventions, ESMAP has distilled lessons learned and identified good practices to share this knowledge at a local and global level. Knowledge sharing and outreach is integrated throughout the technical assistance work of just-in-time assistance and capacity building efforts.
