Across the globe, women play an essential role in tackling the climate change challenge. They are taking action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by leading initiatives that promote new solutions to addressing climate change, while providing economic benefits to communities around the world. They are also promoting transformative partnerships that help to adapt to the effects of climate change and build resilient societies.

With this in mind, the United Nations Climate Change secretariat launched Momentum for Change: Women for Results in December 2012.

Momentum for Change: Women for Results

Momentum for Change: Women for Results recognizes activities that demonstrate the critical leadership and participation of women in addressing climate change. These activities show measurable results, which can be potentially be replicated and scaled up at the local, national and international levels.

Momentum for Change: Women for Results operates in collaboration with donors supporting the implementation of the UNFCCC Gender Action Plan. 

Women taking action on the ground

Momentum for Change: Women for Results showcases Lighthouse Activities that demonstrate concrete results to address climate change. All Women for Results Lighthouse Activities were selected by the Momentum for Change Advisory Panel after receiving dozens of applications from around the world.

All eligible activities are part of an activity database which provides a broader range of the types of actions implemented by women to address climate change.
