New York, May 3rd, 2012
The European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE) has published a report on gender equality and climate change which covers all the European Union Member States and provides comparable data on the European Union level. See http://www.eige.europa.eu/content/document/gender-equality-and-climate-change-main-findings
The findings demonstrate that women’s involvement in climate change decision-making at national, European and international levels is still low. Therefore, EIGE introduces the first EU indicators in the area K: Women and the Environment of the Beijing Platform for Action to support the policy makers in enhancing equality and improving the climate change policies.
