GENDER- JUST CLIMATE SOLUTIONS
Overcoming barriers to technology transfer and development from a gender-just approach
This publication is the outcome of two capacity building workshops co-organized by Women Engage for a Common Future (WECF) and the Climate Technology Centre & Network (CTCN) on up-scaling gender-just climate solutions during COP23 and COP24 in Bonn and Katowice, respectively. Participants included representatives from award winning organizations of the Gender-Just Climate Solutions Award, from the UNFCCC Women and Gender Constituency (WGC), and several climate technology and gender experts invited by WECF and the CTCN. The objective was to share the lessons learned and best practices from climate initiatives around the world that integrate a gender-responsive, or even gender-transformative approach, and discuss approaches to overcoming barriers for up-scaling. WGC and the CTCN share the conviction that gender-responsive climate solutions ensure more effective and socially just climate policies and action.
