Gender Justice in the Climate Debate

As of: September 2021

The aim of the project was to incorporate the women’s perspective in the climate debate. To this end, the project comprehensively planned and implemented a one-day international conference to be held alongside the United Nations Climate Change Conference in December 2008 in Poznan, and carried out follow-up actions. The conference brought together female gender and climate experts to exchange ideas and experiences on (gender) justice in climate policy. Discussions focused on strategies for integrating the gender perspective into national and international climate policy. The participants presented their approaches within the framework of the Climate Change Conference and also acted as multipliers in their home countries. Background papers were drafted in various countries in preparation for the event. Activities surrounding the UNFCCC negotiations included the dissemination of the outcomes of the gender conference.
