What is gender equality

Gender equality is the state in which all people, regardless of their gender, have equal rights, freedoms, conditions and opportunities. It does not mean that people 鈥 for example women and men 鈥 become the same, but rather that they have equal life chances and are valued equally. This applies not only to equality of opportunity but also to equality of impact and benefits arising from economic, social, cultural and political development 鈥 as well as opportunity to shape and influence those values, norms and systems.

澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 position paper for UNFCCC COP27

UNFCCC COP27 is taking place at a time of considerable global turmoil, with growing economic hardship and food and energy insecurity worsening the effects of a still ongoing pandemic.

Implementing programming across 160 countries around the globe, 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 plays a key role in supporting countries and their stakeholders to improve their capacities for and commitments to gender-responsive action across climate change, biodiversity, desertification and degradation, and other sustainable development spheres. 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 has supported more than two dozen countries in developing , which build on a country鈥檚 national climate change policy, strategy, or plan 鈥 identifying gender gaps and gender-responsive actions across each priority sector to enhance rights-based, gender-responsive, socially inclusive climate decision-making, programming, and practice.

Gender and Climate Change
