Launched by the Women and Gender Constituency in 2015, the Award honours the fundamental contribution of gender equality and women’s organisations in the fight against climate chaos and demonstrates the necessity to integrate gender equality in all climate policies.

"The incredible dynamism of the Gender Just Climate Solutions awardees network is a source of innovative and successful experiences that informs the CTCN’s recommendations for gender-responsive technology transfer and development", noted CTCN Director Dr. Rose Mwebaza.

Each winner receives a grant of 2,000 Euros, travel support for one representative to attend COP26, mentorship from the members of the Women and Gender Constituency (WGC), and opportunity to participate in a skills training workshop held by the UN Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN). Being the 6th year running, this year there were 157 applicants from all over the world.
