Achieving gender equality through response to climate change: case studies from local action to global policy

This paper presents specific examples of the work of members of the Global Gender and Climate Alliance (GGCA), showcasing their diverse expertise and practical experience, as well as highlighting lessons learned in developing and implementing gender-responsive climate policy and practice at all levels. These examples are drawn from experiences involving expanding access to and control over renewable energy; mainstreaming gender in national energy programmes; capacity building on reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+); advocating for gender equality in forest and land tenure issues; conveying human stories behind the statistics to policymakers; establishing a community resilience fund to integrate grassroots women in the fight against climate change; and promoting gender balance in international climate finance mechanisms.
