This report has been designed for policymakers to offer guidance on how to promote gender equality across all levels of policy and programming in climate change, and to provide the necessary tools to do so.

UNDP has been working with governments to integrate gender equality and women’s empowerment into climate change dialogue and climate finance structures. At the global level, UNDP, along with its partners from the Global Gender and Climate Alliance (GGCA), has been supporting the integration of gender equality into the climate negotiation processes and into the policy and governance structures of key climate finance mechanisms, such as the Green Climate Fund.

At a local level, UNDP engages with communities to address the specific vulnerabilities of women to climate change and empower them as agents of change. This exposure places UNDP in a unique position to extend support on integrating gender equality into climate change mitigation and technology development and transfer initiatives. The report provides tangible examples taken from UNDP’s work with gender mainstreaming in Bhutan and Cambodia.
