Apply by 9 September for your project to win a ‘Gender Just Climate Solutions Award’ and it could be the recipient of a cash prize and major spotlight during COP25 in Santiago de Chile
Four years ago, the Paris agreement was adopted with an important preamble that makes specific references to human rights and gender equality. Yet today, even after the adoption of a gender action plan at COP23, many decision-makers still do not understand how adopting a rights based and gender-responsive approach can lead to more ambitious and effective climate policies. That is why we want to showcase the Gender Just Climate Solutions at the upcoming climate negotiations. Women Engage for a Common Future and the Women and Gender Constituency have launched the fifth edition of the Gender Just Climate Solutions Awards, which will honour – at COP25 – the fundamental contribution of women in the fight against climate change. These awards are made to inspire political decision-makers and funders to develop a more inclusive, fair and effective climate strategies.
Apply now, and you will have a chance to present your initiative during COP25 in Santiago de Chile
