Card announcing NAP GN Event at COP 28

The Paris Agreement acknowledges the need for adaptation action to be gender-responsive, recognizing gender differences in adaptation needs and capacities, ensuring equitable participation and influence in decision making, and achieving gender-equitable distribution of benefits resulting from adaptation investments, including finance

This session will provide an update on the progress made in mainstreaming gender considerations into NAP processes globally. It will also showcase the efforts of three francophone countries supported by the NAP Global Network—Côte d’Ivoire, Haiti, and Senegal—to address gender inequalities through adaptation action.

Government representatives from the three countries will participate in a panel discussion to highlight progress, discuss challenges, and share learning from the process. This event will be held in French, with simultaneous interpretation in English.
