The W+ Standard's pilot project in Nepal is one of the winners for the Momentum for Change, women for results category.
The side event for women for results is held on 15 November, 18:00- 20:00 in the limate Action Arena, Room Fes, inside the "Blue Zone" of the Bab Ighli conference venue. The events are open to all registered participants attending COP 22.
This event will show how women are leading the way on climate action worldwide. The event is divided into two segments. The first is a high-level panel discussion that will explore how gender equality and the empowerment of women is critical when addressing climate change and implementing the Sustainable Development Goals. The second segment will demonstrate on-the-ground examples of climate solutions that are led by, and empower, women by the 2016 winners of the Momentum for Change Women for Results focus area.
