UN Climate Change News, 2 May 2018 - Stepping up gender-responsive climate policy and promoting gender equality in the international response to climate change will be the focus of a series of events during the Bonn Climate Change Conference, all of which will be webcast live.
Governments have recognized the importance of involving women and men equally in UN Climate Change processes and in the development and implementation of national climate policies that are gender-responsive.
Women who are climate experts, gender experts – or both - including grassroots leaders, policy makers, financiers, project developers, and farmers, bring critically important and often different perspectives that can lead to more effective climate policy and action, while advancing gender equality and women’s empowerment in the process.
