Last Updated: 21 Oct 2022

Thursday 6 October 2022 | 15:00-16:30 CEST 

Virtual Webinar hosted by the Paris Committee on Capacity Building (PCCB) Network, organized by UNDP and FAO with the support of IKI

Building on over seven years of joint collaboration (through the IKI-funded NAP-Ag and SCALA programmes), UNDP and FAO organized a webinar to create a space for an exchange of experiences on gender-responsive national climate planning processes.

Achieving climate-related goals in land use and agriculture requires nothing less than the transformation of food and agricultural systems. This includes transforming systems and structures in ways that promote gender equality and social inclusion (such as for smallholders and marginalized groups) not only to address differences in vulnerability but also to build upon the knowledge, needs, and insights different groups can contribute to climate solutions. 

Countries are integrating gender equality and social inclusion into their National Adaptation Plans (NAPs) and Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), as shown by recent analyses. Further action is needed to ensure that gender-responsive goals are attained during implementation.
