WEDO has been collecting gender balance and women’s participation data at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) since 2008. The UNFCCC negotiations are a space where women are consistently under-represented, and although some delegations have achieved gender parity, and some delegations even feature a majority of women, this is not a case of a few unbalanced delegations. WEDO recognizes the need for concerted efforts to achieve gender balance and to support pathways for women’s participation, learning, and leadership in this process.
