UNFCCC Climate Dialogue Special Event: Gender-transformative climate action from the ground

The Women and Gender Constituency and WECF invite you to celebrate with us the 5th anniversary of the ‘Gender-Just Climate Solutions Awards’ in a Special Event part of the UN Climate Change Dialogues 2020:
“Gender-transformative climate action from the ground”

When: Wednesday, 2nd December 2020, 1:30 – 2:30 PM CET
Languages: English – Spanish – French

During the UN Climate Change Dialogues 2020, we celebrated exemplary gender-responsive climate initiatives that have received the ‘Gender-Just Climate Solutions Awards’ since COP21. The event allowed Parties representatives to identify key success factors of community owned initiatives and see upscaling potential of actions that can contribute to more inclusive and transformative national climate plans with the support of targeted technology transfer and financial mechanisms.

The celebration of the GJCS together with the launch of the special edition of the 2020 GJCS Publication presents locally owned solutions that have demonstrated success on the ground and have potential for shifting power relations and ensuring women’s rights and leadership as well as positive impact for our planet.
