We know the gender just solutions to a sustainable future already

“Highlighting the importance of gender equality, women’s rights and their contribution to climate solutions”. This will be the main aim of the 'Gender Just Climate Solutions Award', which will be presented at a ceremony during the upcoming UN climate negotiations (COP22) in Marrakech, organised by the Women and Gender Constituency (WGC) on Monday November 14.

The full Press Release can be downloaded here

The Women and Gender Constituency of the UNFCCC (founded in 2009), along with other women, gender, and human rights advocates, has been actively pushing world leaders to ensure just and equitable climate policies, that puts respect of people's rights and the integrity of the planet first, while responding to injustice among and within countries in relation to climate impacts and resilience.

“We know the solutions to a sustainable future already exist – and it is time to showcase them far and wide – and demand change”, states co-organiser Anne Barre. After the Paris Agreement, and while world leaders will meet at the COP22 this November, it is time to highlight the importance of gender equality, women’s rights and contribution to climate solutions, according to the WGC. The Gender Just Climate Solutions Award will make gender responsive and equitable solutions visible at the "COP of action" (COP22 in Marrakech) and make them central to just climate actions all over the world!

Three laureates will be awarded for their women & gender initiatives for climate solutions, in the categories:

  • Technical climate solutions with a women or gender perspective (e.g. in area of renewables, water-saving adaptation technologies etc.)
  • Non-technical climate solutions with a women or gender perspective (e.g. in area of efficiency, consumption changes etc.)
  • Transformation climate initiatives with a women or gender perspective (e.g. addressing governance, institutional change, planning processes etc.)
