Across the globe, evidence demonstrates the important role gender parity plays in the effective implementation of low-carbon, climate-resilient systems. This event will focus on gender inclusive strategies, opportunities and innovative approaches to building climate-smart and climate-resilient communities in Africa. This side event will take a look into issues of equal participation of men and women as it relates to opportunities in a climate-smart economy and how this translates into sustainable societies. Other areas to be highlighted include policy and programmatic considerations focused on improving livelihood and health of women in line with building climate-resilience.

These crucial debates will be sparked by our side event, which will bring together leaders of public and private institutions, decision-makers from various Parties, gender specialists, and concerned members of the global public.
