PARIS, France (December 1, 2015) — On Tuesday, Kate Cahoon from GenderCC – Women for Climate Justice, Germany, on behalf of the Constituency, delivered a statement in the opening of the 43nd Session of the Subsidiary Body Implementation (SBI), calling for further progress under the Lima Work Programme on Gender following the first workshop on gender-responsive policy in relation to mitigation actions and technology transfer and development in June. She noted that “in discussions under the new agreement, the linkages between gender and mitigation and technology are still lacking” and therefore  “encouraged Parties to take the lessons learned under this Work Programme into consideration in their deliberations in the ADP”.
