Issue 2: GEDA Insights

Welcome to the second edition of GEDA Insights, the newsletter of the Gender and Environment Data Alliance! As introduced in our first issue, GEDA was formed by 17 founding organizations to improve availability, accessibility, understanding, and application of quality and robust data and information at the gender and environment nexus. 

In this issue, we’re thrilled to launch our 2023 Membership Drive ! Please fill out this brief form if you’d like to join GEDA–as a Member, a Core Partner, or an individual in our Data Advisory Group. Read more below and on our site about the different opportunities for membership, and please share with interested colleagues! 

Scroll down for recent GEDA activities, resources, and this issue’s GEDA Member Spotlight: an interview with IISD on the UNFCCC Global Stocktake process. 

Thanks for reading and sharing!

GEDA Membership Drive

Do you work on gender, the environment/climate change, and data—and want to learn from and help drive this alliance?

GEDA is pleased to invite new members to join the Alliance, as we launch our first membership drive! As our work gets underway, we’re seeking to invite additional organizations, governments, and other institutions to join the alliance–especially those based in the Global South. Individuals are also welcome to join GEDA via our new Data Advisory Group!

Our criteria for new members are pretty straightforward: 

      1. You work on gender and the environment/climate change;
      2. You have expertise in data, or would like to build this expertise;
      3. You subscribe to GEDA’s principles (Ambition, Inclusion, Accessibility, and Coherence) and governance values (equity, gender justice, and inclusion); and
      4. You want to learn from, share resources with, and engage with like-minded institutions across the world.

As we set  up our interim Steering Committee, GEDA will offer several different modes in which prospective members can engage. We’ll be considering applications on a rolling basis, and scheduling an internal learning event with our expanded membership later this year.

Join Us! 

Gender & Environment Data Spotlight

Assessing the relationship between Gender and Environment in an Individual-Level measure of Multidimensional Poverty


This paper by the International Women’s Development Agency (IWDA), published for the Conference of European Statisticians, describes the rationale for including the environment as a dimension of multidimensional poverty and how it is assessed.


Who Decides: Women’s Participation in the UNFCCC

This paper by the Women’s Environment and Development Organization (WEDO), co-convener of GEDA, analyzes women’s participation in the UNFCCC ten years since the landmark Decision 23/CP.18 stated that gender balance in the UNFCCC must be achieved as a “gradual but significant increase”.


Gendered Impacts of Climate Change: Evidence from Asia

This paper by UN Women explores the connections between phenomena related to climate change and gender related outcomes in Bangladesh, Cambodia, Nepal, the Philippines and Timor-Leste. 


In Case You Missed It

GEDA was chosen to join the latest cohort of organizations in the Data for Climate Resilience Peer Learning Network hosted by Microsoft and the Open Data Institute as part of the Open Data Campaign for data improvement and management. On behalf of the alliance, Claudia Rubio from WEDO, Laura Sabater from IUCN, and our technical consultant Bea Moraras participated in the network, from January to May 2023.
