A Large Step Towards Gender-Just Climate Policies, but Too Little Overall Progress: GenderCC´s & LIFE´s joint statement on the outcomes of COP23

This is a joint statement of GenderCC´s & LIFE´s on the outcomes of COP23. They actively participated through formal interventions in the plenaries, meetings with national delegations, policy recommendations and public activities. They express their concernes about the absence of human rights and gender equality in the negotiations on these implementation guidelines. They do appreciate the Gender Action Plans acknowledging the importance of women participation but they would like to see more advancement of and capacity-building on tools such as Gender Impact Assessments that are crucial for the development of gender-responsive climate adaptation and mitigation policies and monitoring and reporting on the activities.
