Objectives

This event aims to underscore the critical role of gender and environment data in informing and enhancing gender-responsive national climate policies, emphasizing the interconnection between the Gender Action Plan and climate action at regional, national, and local levels. It will:

  • Identify how gender and environment data is fundamental in the Gender Action Plan, both in ongoing progress and in its subsequent iteration; 
  • Provide examples from the work of GEDA members at various levels, emphasizing how  data can support Parties and contribute to updating national climate policy (e.g. NDCs); and
  • Highlight the potential use of GEDA and its members in amplifying gender and environment data and contributing to more gender-transformative policy, within and beyond the UNFCCC.
