On 26 October 17.30 to 19 CEST (27 October 2022 – 00:30 to 02:00 KST/GMT+9), the Green Growth Knowledge Partnership Gender Expert Group will host a session on Gender Just Interventions for Transformative Climate Action at the Global Green Growth Week 2022.
“Just Transitions” is on the climate agenda with the Just Transition Declaration agreed at COP26 and other initiatives, including the development of Just Transitions Financial Roadmaps in some countries. At the same time, gender is often left inexplicit in the concept of Just Transitions and requisite financing continues to be lacking. This leads to increased gaps in going from ambition to tangible outcomes at impact. We are seeing missed opportunities to integrate gender and equity perspectives into climate action, which could limit tangible achievement of the SDGs.
In response to this, the Green Growth Knowledge Platform (GGKP) Gender Expert Group (GEG) was established in 2021, consisting of leading international agencies promoting green economy and green growth, to identify and close the gaps in achieving transformative outcomes at scale, particularly through development of a Gender-Just Transition Outcomes Framework.
In this session, members of the GGKP GEG will discuss the barriers and obstacles preventing us from moving beyond “gender at entry” to real impacts on the ground. The session will respond to the following questions:
- What models and tools work?
- What do we need to further create an enabling environment for more just and inclusive outcomes?
