Bloomberg Future of Energy Summit
The time is now. That was my overriding impression from attending the Bloomberg Future of Energy Summit in New York two weeks ago.  Conferences such as this are always useful but it’s rare that you leave thinking “this really feels like a defining moment.” But there was definitely a sense that the clean energy industry is changing dimension and gaining momentum.

Happy belated International Women’s Day. The importance of women’s empowerment and gender equality in advancing development outcomes is increasingly accepted and the UN Commission for the Status of Women is currently discussing this and much more in New York.  However, the link between gender and climate has not always been as widely recognized. The Climate Investment Funds (CIF) pilot countries and partners have been developing ways to improve gender mainstreaming in CIF investment plans and projects. Take Yemen for example.
