This note presents a methodology to integrate gender in Long Term Low Emissions Development Strategies (LT-LEDS), developed by the Global Green Growth Institute and UN Women in the context of the formulation of Burkina Faso LT-LEDS in 2022. LT-LEDS are important policy instruments to define low emissions development paths for countries as part of their implementation of the Paris Agreement. LT-LEDS long-term outlook offers tremendous opportunities for leveraging socio-economic transformations associated to low carbon economic paths to achieve gender equality and women’s empowerment.

The methodology presented in this note can be applied in other countries or regions to help countries maximize gender co-benefits as part of LT-LEDS processes. The lessons drawn from the process of application of the methodology in Burkina Faso can help other countries in making progress towards gender-responsive, just, green transitions.
