Am finding in my work on gender and energy planning that women prefer to have planning happen at a local level if possible, because it is easier for them to access. They often find centralized national planning to be abstruse and divorced from their reality. In the same vein, when planners are obliged to deal with the complexities of life at the local level, it often changes the way they plan - they are obliged to put the people before the plan instead of the other way round as so often happens with high level processes.
