This note is intended to serve as a quick reference guide for applying a gender lens to the design and implementation of a mini‐grid to enhance development outcomes. As mini‐grids are increasingly seen as a potential solution to energy access issues, importance must be placed on ensuring that the benefits and opportunities of the intervention are realized for both men and women. The guidance below provides energy access, social development and gender specialists, with additional ideas and best‐practice approaches to integrate at all stages of the project cycle in order to enhance gender equality.
