Five years after the signature of the Paris Agreement, the Women and Gender Constituency (WECF) and the Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) present the accomplishment of 15 award winners who implement Gender Just Climate Solutions all around the world. They showcase climate resilient and transformative development models that bring multiple social and environmental benefits.
Building upon 3 successful years of co-organizing this programme, the CTCN and the WECF conducted online mentoring on women’s green entrepreneurship through technology, design thinking and climate finance, including response to COVID-19 in the ongoing work of partner organizations. The CTCN and WECF also conducted surveys and interviews in order to identify, document and share information on the impacts of the Gender-Just Climate Solutions Awards and the initiatives of the award winners, in order to inform political decision makers, climate change organizations and entrepreneurs, and to encourage countries to raise NDC ambitions by factoring in women’s needs and capacities in regard to climate change action. The results of this research were presented at the UNFCCC Climate Dialogues 2020.
