IISD at Women Deliver 2023 Conference
IISD is attending Women Deliver 2023 to engage in important discussions and address current issues affecting women and girls in climate change adaptation planning processes, such as the lack of participation by women in climate policy dialogues.
Under the theme "Spaces, Solidarity, and Solutions," Women Deliver’s sixth edition aims to enable inclusive and co-created spaces that foster solidarity for sustainable solutions on gender equality.
Members of IISD's team, including at the NAP Global Network Secretariat, will be in Kigali to engage with grassroots advocates, decision-makers, representatives of private sector and non-profit organizations, as well as youth, to address current issues affecting women and girls in climate change adaptation planning processes, such as the lack of participation by women in climate policy dialogues.
Join us in Kigali and online for the events we are organizing during the conference! All times listed below are local.
Generation Equality: Networking event

The reception will be an occasion for participants to engage with other Women Deliver attendees working at the intersection of gender equality and climate action. Note that participation in this event is by invitation only.
Date: Monday, July 17, 13:00 - 15:00
Location: Kinigi-Kivu Room
This event is co-organized with Feminist Action for Climate Justice (FACJ) Action Coalition under Generation Equality.
Creative Solutions for Amplifying Underrepresented Women's Voices in Climate Action: Concurrent session
The NAP Global Network is co-hosting a session on the transformative potential of visual storytelling to generate inclusive climate change adaptation policy dialogues.
The session will feature Envisioning Resilience, a groundbreaking initiative that is providing six young women with photography and storytelling training. The aim is to enable them to use visual storytelling to inform National Adaptation Plan (NAP) decision-makers about how climate change affects their lives and how they envision resilience to its impacts. NAP processes are a vital opportunity to address gender inequalities while planning and implementing measures to protect communities, economies, and ecosystems from the effects of climate change.

Alongside the Thirteenth WTO Ministerial Conference (MC13) we will be running our Trade + Sustainability Hub, bringing together thought leaders from both within and outside governments for a series of conversations on the challenges of building cooperative trade policy that delivers for sustainable development.
