    Reaching gender equality, youth inclusion and parity in decision-making in the climate change dialogue 2022

    Women and young people have proven the required skills to accelerate climate action. They are committed activists, agents of change, resilience builders, innovators and entrepreneurs. Yet, their voices are still often not heard and their specific challenges and priorities are not adequately addressed in planning and decision-making processes. The impacts of the climate crises are being felt most by women, youth, disabled, powerless and indigenous peoples and immigrants, who often live in the most vulnerable and risk exposed areas. Special efforts are needed to engage women and young people in planning and decision-making. Gender transformative approaches can help to understand, reflect on, challenge and change harmful gender norms and roles, unequal power dynamics and discriminatory social structures. These approaches can also contribute to ensuring that the technical knowledge and leadership skills of women and young people are further developed, so as to achieve long-standing and equitable impacts. This side event will present successful approaches and good practices that have contributed to the inclusion of women and young people in decision-making for climate action in agriculture; and will propose some recommendations on how to better integrate them into local and international negotiation tables. Furthermore, the event will provide an opportunity for participants to build alliances with strategic partners and stakeholders working towards gender-responsive climate actions.

    Dimitra Clubs: Leaving no one behind through community engagement and women’s empowerment 2023
    Also available in:

    The world is not on track in making the pledge of leaving no one behind a reality, particularly in rural areas where most of the extreme poor live. Rural people in low-income countries increasingly face structural constraints in seizing socio-economic and political opportunities. In addition, gender discriminatory social norms prevent rural women and girls from realizing their full potential as leaders and economic agents, constraining the livelihoods and well-being of entire rural societies. In this context, development and humanitarian actors tend to overlook the use of community engagement and gender-transformative approaches, despite the fact that these are cost effective and have high returns. Considering these pressing challenges, it is of paramount importance to promote collective action at community level – ensuring ownership and sustainability – to trigger transformative changes in terms of gender equality, women’s leadership and social inclusion.
