Come and meet Anna Samwel, Director of WECF Georgia and main project coordinator at the:

Workshop on gender-responsive climate policy
World Conference Centre, room 13,
Time: 10:00 -13:00

The gender-sensitive NAMA (Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action) in Georgia consists of the implementation of 11.500 energy efficiency stoves, house insulations and solar water heaters. To develop the NAMA, WECF collaborates with sustainable energy cooperatives in 5 Georgian regions with the aim to fight climate change and ensure environmental sustainability while promoting renewable energies and gender equality.
The main outcomes of the NAMA are:

  • Substantial energy savings for households (more than 30%)
  • Over 36 000 t CO2 emission reductions
  • Gender-equal technical trainings for solar energy and energy efficiency
  • 23 certified women solar energy specialists
  • Reduced unpaid domestic work burden for women

 

Recommendations, best practices and lessons learned from developing the first „Gender Sensitive“ NAMA - National Appropriate Mitigation Action, in Georgia, can be found here.

The program and link for the live stream can be found on the UNFCCC website
