WEDO challenges the dominant approach to climate change that prioritizes market-based solutions over human rights-based policies which seek to protect the most vulnerable. By documenting the key economic dimensions of climate change policies and processes and their implications for women, WEDO advocates for climate change financing that is gender sensitive.
Working with partners in Africa and Asia to produce case studies and to develop a platform to impact key global processes, WEDO is also analyzing the major market-based approaches to climate change mitigation, including large-scale bio-fuel production and carbon trading, from a gender perspective. The WEDO MisFortune 500 web resource reports on corporate profiteering arising from ‘false’ climate change mitigation strategies while promoting gender-sensitive alternatives.
