Overview from WEDO: In preparation for the COP19 in Warsaw, WEDO in partnership with the Global Gender and Climate Alliance and the UNFCCC Secretariat, has compiled the gender-responsive language from all agreements in the history of the UNFCCC,Gender Equality and The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change: A Compilation of Decision Text. Over the past several years due to increased outreach, knowledge, capacity building and advocacy on the linkages, there has been an exceptional increase in gender-sensitive decisions coming out of the UNFCCC. This reference tool, for policy-makers and practitioners, compiles these women’s rights and gender equality provisions.

WEDO and its advocate allies are currently supporting Parties with technical tools to help turn these noteworthy commitments into action at the national and more local levels. For more information on this, please contact Bridget Burns, bridget[at]wedo.org.
