Gender-Responsive Climate Action
What does gender-responsive climate action look like?
At the 23rd session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 23) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Parties adopted the Gender Action Plan, which outlines priority areas of action, including gender-responsive implementation of the Paris Agreement and gender balance, participation and women’s leadership.
On the sidelines of COP23, the IISD and the Government of Grenada co-hosted a side event that explored what gender-responsive climate action looks like, bringing together a number of experts to discuss themes such as women’s empowerment, inclusive policy-making and innovative practices to advance gender-responsive climate action.
This article summarizes some of the highlights from these discussions.
