Gender has always been a major consideration in the Energy Sector of the Pacific Islands. In the 1990’s, a Pacific Energy Gender Network was coordinated through the Regional Energy Programme hosted by the then SOPAC. Due to funding constraints and staff turnover, the network has been dormant over the years. However, the importance of women and children participating as equal partners on matters and decisions in the energy sector have not been lost. Development partners and PICs have continued to take gender into account in designing and implementing energy projects in the region.
