New York, September 13th, 2010 — At the COP15 in Copenhagen, civil society participation in the UNFCCC process was severely limited by a great lack of transparency and organizational preparation. Many organizations, including WEDO and the other members of the Women and Gender Constituency called out for a review of the process to ensure that these mistakes would not be repeated in the future.

In an attempt to respond to this issue, in June, the thirty-second session of the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI 32) requested Parties and Observers to the UNFCCC to submit their views on the issues related to Observer organization participation.

In August, the Women and Gender Constituency, which WEDO is founding member of,  provided its perspective on the way to enhance the participation of Observer organizations within the UNFCCC, which you can read here.
