UN Climate talks: The urgency for a gender-responsive approach

Home |  News | UN Climate talks: The urgency for a gender-responsive approach

From the Bonn Climate Change Conference 8 to 18 May: “We are four days into the negotiations in Bonn and the spirit is high. Not only are the chestnuts in the city in full bloom, but constructive discussions on many of the topics under the Paris agreement are underway, including the crucial topic of how to enhance the implementation of gender related mandates and decisions under the Paris agreement and the climate convention. A UNFCC workshop on how to develop a Gender Action Plan has taken place over the past two days here in Bonn, and several ACT Alliance members have taken part. Together with country delegations, UN agencies officials and other CSOs we have collectively been working on priority areas and key activities that the gender action plan should include.”
