Rising to the challenge: Driving gender-responsive and inclusive climate actions

With over 104 UNFCCC decisions that include gender mandates, the call from the Generation Equality Forum to enact Feminist Action for Climate Justice, and Commission on the Status of Women outcomes and recommendations on achieving gender equality in the context of climate change – this event showcases examples on how we can rise to the challenge of meeting commitments by driving gender-responsive and inclusive climate actions.
