Gender Into Urban Climate Change Conference, March 10th 2022


Gender Into Urban Climate Change – Final Conference

GenderCC–Women for Climate Justice e.V. hosted its final conference on the results of the project “Gender into Urban Climate Change Initiative”.

Cities are key actors for the implementation of climate adaptation and mitigation policies. Yet, while the Paris Agreement is calling for the consideration of gender equality when taking action to address climate change, urban policies are still lacking of a gender perspective. Therefore, GenderCC’s “Gender Into Urban Climate Change Initiative” (GUCCI) has explored options for integrating gender and social aspects. In the conference, we will present our approach and the resulting recommendations for gender-responsive urban climate action, with the aim of empowering women’s organisations and civil society groups to get involved and push for both ambitious climate policy and the integration of social and gender aspects.
