The objectives of the Publication are to: (i) Integrate gender into climate policies at both individual and regional levels in a systematic and holistic manner; (ii) Build the capacity of policymakers in designing inclusive and gender-responsive climate-related policies; (iii) Promote women’s leadership in climate-related policymaking and negotiating processes.
Considering the opportunities and challenges, insights shared by APEC members and international experts, the project has identified 4 key recommendations:
- Strengthen the linkage between gender equality and climate change interventions (policy and programmatic) and broader social, economic, cultural, and political frameworks.
- Improve data availability on the gender equality risks and impacts of climate change to enhance inclusive and gender responsive policy development and programming.
- Demonstrate political commitment by prioritizing the rights and needs of women and marginalized groups through concrete actions.
- Establish a monitoring framework to track progress towards gender equality in climate action.
