From December 2nd to December 13th, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) COP25, will be taking place in Madrid. The conference is designed to take the next crucial steps in the UN climate change process, following the internationally agreed upon guidelines as officiated in the Paris Accord of 2015. Gender Concerns is actively participating in this year’s Convention by hosting a Discussion Session on Gender and Climate Finance at the Benelux-EIB Pavilion on Saturday, December 7th. The Discussion will be joined by Ms. Tracy Kajumba, who is a Principal Researcher at the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) in the Climate Change Group.
The Gender Watch International Network (G-WIN) program, developed by Gender Concerns International, will also be highlighted and discussed during this session. G-WIN is focused on promoting the participation of women and their leadership role in environmental decision-making processes, by applying a multi-stakeholder approach to this issue.
