The Conference of Parties (COP) in its decision 18/CP.20 requested the UNFCCC secretariat to organize an in-session workshop on gender-responsive climate policy with a focus on mitigation action and technology development and transfer during fourty-second session of the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI).
 
The objectives of the in-session workshop are to:

  • Increase understanding of the meanings of key gender related terms and concepts in the context of climate change policy, particularly related to climate change mitigation action and technology transfer and development.
  • Enhance understanding of the steps and processes of gender mainstreaming in climate change mitigation and technology development and transfer, including the use of gender analysis results to inform climate policy and action;
  • Enhance awareness and identify synergies among relevant bodies and mechanisms within the UNFCCC process for mitigation and technology development and transfer apply gender-responsive measures in their work;
  • Strengthen awareness of best practices, tools/methodologies and lessons learned in developing and implementing gender-responsive climate policies and actions concerning mitigation and technology development and transfer.

Anticipated outcomes include:

  • Increased awareness and knowledge of the meanings of gender mainstreaming related technical terms and language;
  • Increased knowledge of gender mainstreaming steps, processes and tools in climate mitigation and technology development and transfer policy and action;
  • identification of gaps in knowledge and challenges in implementation of gender-responsive climate policy;
  • Guidance on next steps to advance gender-responsiveness in climate policy in relation to mitigation action and technology development and transfer;
  • Guidance on improving the gender-responsiveness of relevant bodies and mechanisms under the UNFCCC;
  • A report of the in-session workshop.

The workshop will also be made available through live and on-demand web-cast.
