Support for regional dialogue, capacity-building and experience exchanges in mainstreaming the gender approach and the participation of vulnerable groups in public policies to address climate change

During the XXV Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC (COP25) an agreement was reached on the renewal of the Gender Action Plan (GAP). This five-year enhanced action plan focuses on implementation, and states that it is essential that all stakeholders, both public and private, adopt measures that take equality issues into account and that related activities are undertaken.

The gender and climate change action plans, carried out by some countries at the global and regional level, are an opportunity to generate public policy from this perspective.

Likewise, the planning of this work coincides with the renewal of the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) that will be carried out during 2020 by several countries, giving an opportunity to those who have not yet done so, to incorporate the gender perspective in their respective NDCs.

In this context, this action contributes to furthering regional work on gender and climate change through capacity building in the countries of the region.

Expected Results



The aim is to increase information on gender and climate change in the region, and where appropriate at the country level, to account for the gender-differentiated impacts of the effects of climate change.


Spaces are generated for dialogue, reflection, joint action and experience exchanges on challenges and opportunities in LAC to propose options and implement climate responses that favour greater gender equality and economic empowerment of women in a context of changing economic, environmental and socio-demographic scenarios.
