Women in Wind statement to UNFCCC enhanced gender action plan on Gender and Climate Change


In March 2021, GWEC and GWNET submitted a statement to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) on behalf of the Women in Wind Global Leadership Program. The submission will feed into the Enhanced Lima work programme on gender and its gender action plan, informing Convention Parties on the imperatives of a just transition of the workforce and the creation of decent work and quality jobs in accordance with nationally defined development priorities.

GWEC was invited to submit a statement as a non-Party stakeholder to the UNFCCC.

Parties and stakeholders were invited to share experiences of engaging women’s groups and national women and gender institutions in the process of developing, implementing and updating climate policies, plans, strategies and action, as appropriate, at all levels.

From the program experience, key activities for women’s empowerment include: mentorships; personal and professional development; knowledge-transfer webinars and forums; study tours which can expose women to diverse perspectives and network-building opportunities; and sector-wide advocacy and research which prioritises diversity as a driver of the energy transition.
