The Race To Zero Dialogues | Gender-Responsive and Socially Equitable Resilience

Efforts to build resilience will not be effective, sustainable, and will fall short of their moral obligation unless they move away from current development pathways and deliberately address gender and social inequalities.

November 16, 2020 6:30 am - 8:30 am

(Open to public)

As part of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Race to Zero Dialogues, this event explored the challenges and opportunities for gender-responsive climate action with a focus on resilience and social protection.

We have provided three different times for this event, each of which will have a slightly different focus targeted to the location of its audience.

Co-hosted with the Women and Gender Constituency (WGC), these interactive dialogues featured conversations with a diverse group of prominent speakers and allow time for discussion and reflections in smaller groups.

To drive the transformation that is needed to build resilient economies, ecosystems, and societies– while ensuring that no one is left behind–stakeholders must show leadership and commitment in promoting gender-responsive, participatory, and representative governance approaches.
