LCD should avoid risk technologies such as nuclear power and carbon capture and storage. Women are more risk aware and risk averse, and would therefore, if equally involved in decision-making, prefer low-risk technologies. Thus decisions on the kind of technologies used must take these facts into account and LCD strategies should rather rely on safe technologies that provide co-benefits and improve resilience.
