Counting on a Sustainable Future: 
Global Conference on Gender and Environment Data

An official event of the 28th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP28)

For a sustainable future, we need gender and environment data to show us the way, but do we have enough? 

As part of existing global efforts to expand the understanding of the gender-environment nexus, the Offices of the President of the 28th Conference of the Parties (COP28) and the UN Climate Change High Level Champions, UNFCCC, UN Women, IUCN, and WEDO convened a global conference on gender and environment data, from 28-29 November 2023. Speakers and participants included UN Agencies, government officials and policy makers, leaders and commitment makers of the Feminist Action for Climate Justice Action Coalition and the Gender Environment Data Alliance (GEDA), private foundations, civil society organizations, indigenous leaders and local communities and academia. More than 200 participants (in-person and virtually) came together to signal the need for urgent action to increase the collection and use of gender and environment data to fuel gender-responsive climate and environment action globally.
