Ensuring gender equity in climate change financing

This report presents recommendations based on four broad assertions: 1) gendersensitizing procedures and mechanisms will ensure that climate change finance mechanisms, procedures and outcomes impact women and men more equitably; 2) mainstreaming gender will maximize the effectivenessand efficiency of climate change responses and protect women’s social reproductive roles and care activities in the face of climate change impacts and activities; 3) empowering women will ensure that climate change finance policy choices reflect both women’s and men’s interests and enable women to fully participate in all aspects of decision making; and 4) addressing market and non-market mechanisms will facilitate women’s economic and social empowerment by promoting a deeper understanding of the gender differentiated impacts of private- and public-sector climate change finance mechanisms and their impacts on gender equality.
