APA Closing, Olfa Jalessi, May 2016

BONN, Germany (May 26, 2016) – Olfa Jalessi, of GenderCC, in a closing intervention under the APA, insisted on the urgency of transforming the Paris Agreement into efficient climate action, and how integrating gender in all climate actions will help us improve their efficiency, thus helping raise the ambition and accelerate the process. She stated, “every time we apply a gender lens to a climate issue we are sure to provide a more appropriate and more equitable response. For example, with public transport policies: if we want to efficiently curb down the use of individual cars, especially in cities or in and out of cities, we need to take into account the specific needs of women and men and their use and access to transport systems, such as safety concerns.”
