    Most rural women and girls experience multiple disadvantages in their lives, because of systematic gender inequalities. Structural drivers, including discriminatory norms, create and maintain gender gaps in development outcomes. Gender transformative programmes seek to address the underlying structural causes of gender inequalities and transform unequal gender roles and relations. This paper aims to orient the future policy, research and programmatic work of national governments, practitioners and development partners on the adoption of a gender transformative approach (GTA) to social protection to improve results on rural poverty reduction, food security and nutrition. Social protection interventions rarely explicitly address social and gender norms and power dynamics at household level and beyond, but there is a growing demand to understand the potential of social protection policies and programmes to contribute to gender transformative outcomes. This paper critically examines the scope for social protection to be gender transformative and discusses the available evidence on gender transformative impacts of social protection. It also aims to identify how programmes can realistically become more transformative in their objectives, design features and outcomes.

    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.
