Bridget Burns, Informal Dialogue with Incoming COP Presidency, Bonn, June 2014

Andrea Quesada, SBSTA Opening Plenary, June 2014

“In these past months SBSTA has made substantial progress integrating gender in some of its agenda items. Particularly, the Constituency welcomes the report of technical expert meeting on available tools for the use of indigenous knowledge and practices for adaptation, and the application of gender-sensitive approaches and tools for adaptation considered under agenda item 3 on the Nairobi Work Programme….Lastly, all land sector and land use negotiations should recognize and incorporate gender as a crucial crosscutting issue; recognize women as stakeholders with unique needs, preferences and contributions; focus on resources on/from land, and not the land itself; and ensure that actions proposed are based on a gender-responsive approach.”

Bridget Burns, ADP Opening Plenary, June 2014

“The Constituency views this session as an important moment for articulating with Parties how gender equality can be appropriately integrated into the new agreement. Examples from the integration of gender into the Green Climate Fund architecture as well as strong language in the Cancun agreements on human rights and gender equality provide precedents and models to review in considering options. The Constituency members are committed to work and support Parties on this articulation at this sessions.”
