    Key finding

    From a sample of 192 national energy frameworks from 137 countries, nearly one-third of the frameworks include gender considerations to some extent. Of those that include gender keywords, context analysis reveals that women are characterized as potential stakeholders or beneficiaries, but seldom as agents of change.

    Threats and responses  
    •       Current global mean warming of less than 1ºC above pre-industrial levels has already significantly impacted the Earth’s climate system and the majority of the world’s ecosystems and species.  
    •       The majority of this warming is caused by fossil fuel-generated CO 2  which is also causing ocean acidification to occur at an unprecedented rate, with profound ramifications for biodiversity and humanity.
