Women leading: lessons from local action on gender and climate to inform international climate action.

This panel event from Climate Action Network Europe, CARE International and PACJA will share experiences of local to international action on gender and climate, including grassroots initiatives in areas such as agroecology and adaptation, and renewable energy. This will be followed by discussion on how this should inform the approach to the Gender Action Plan and Strategy at the UNFCCC, considering the UK COP26 Presidency’s commitments to advance gender, and through the UK’s and EU’s climate finance and development cooperation, and the new EU Africa Partnership Strategy.

With facilitation by CAN Europe and speakers including representatives from:

  • Pan-African Climate Justice Alliance (PACJA)
  • CARE International Southern Africa
  • European Commission
  • African government representatives
  • Other African CSOs
