Shifting to female-driven climate action

@BonnGlobal Workshops – Gender@International Bonn is an institutional network for gender equality based in Bonn. The Panel showcases how mainstreaming gender into climate action and gender-just climate budgeting can be beneficial in order to master the Climate Emergency. Starting with the need to unleash the potential of women for better climate action, the panelists comment on the Gender Action Plan under the UNFCCC and financial instruments. The session introduces projects in Bonn’s sister cities La Paz (Bolivia) and Cape Coast (Ghana) and also gives a deeper inside into gender just resilience building.
