Objectives and Activities

By leveraging the networks of its membership, the Alliance will mobilize diverse stakeholders to curate, communicate, amplify, and learn from gender and environment data. The Alliance will also engage in capacity and skills building at multiple levels, from grassroots practice to national implementation to global statistics norm-setting bodies. GEDA seeks to advance gender-just climate and environmental action by catalyzing and scaling the analysis and use of gender-disaggregated data and intersectional analysis. 


Formed as a Collective Commitment under the Generation Equality Forum, GEDA will improve accessibility, methods, understanding and application of robust gender data to contribute to equitable and sustainable outcomes for all. GEDA will grow over an initial 5-year implementation phase, to serve four key functions:

Compile and Review

Compile and review existing data and research at the nexus between gender and the environment, serving as a recognized reference hub to aggregate and analyze feminist, traditional and non-traditional data sources. 

Amplify and Communicate

Amplify and communicate disaggregated, intersectional gender data, to scale gender-transformative policy and programming, including and beyond the traditional data establishment. 

Strengthen Capacity

Strengthen capacity of statistical bureaus and other traditional data spaces and actors to catalyze best practices, and use of quality data and knowledge to promote gender-transformative environment and climate action, guided by feminist, participatory action research methods and citizen-generated data.

Influence Norms

Influence norms of data generation, synthesis and analysis, including to strengthen the mandates of intergovernmental processes and redefine analytical frameworks around gender, climate, and environment, by expanding definitions and representation.

Guiding Principles



GEDA will present tools, frameworks, and approaches to advance systemic, gender-transformative shifts in policy, programming, financing, and planning.



GEDA will support and elevate the efforts of excluded actors, promoting and amplifying feminist participatory action research and other non-traditional practices of data and evidence collection, while adhering to accountability to grassroots and civil society organizations through non-extractivist working methods.



GEDA will encourage open and transparent collection and sharing of data, upholding our vision of data as a public good while protecting the privacy of data sources.



GEDA will collate and uplift existing work, convening efforts around gender and environment data to promote high quality gender-transformative data analysis, dissemination and use.
