The economic case for gender responsive climate action

This dialogue will shine a light on the compelling economic reasons why governments are seeking or promoting, and investors (private and public) are funding climate policy and action that considers the needs, perspectives and ideas of both women and men who are impacted by such policy and action. Unleashing the potential of all citizens to address the challenges of climate change can create opportunities for countries to raise ambition in their respective national climate plans
