Webinar on gender and climate finance

Join us for this webinar series to know more about the status of the integration of gender consideration in key climate finance mechanisms, including the operating entities of the UNFCCC financial mechanism as well as private sector and philanthropic financial institutions. 

The aim of the series is to raise awareness of available financial and technical support for gender integration; funding policies that facilitate the implementation of gender-responsive climate policies and action; and the gender gap in access to and benefit from climate finance. We will make recordings of the webinars available on this webpage for those who are not able to attend.

The video is available now:
