This is the first in a new “Global Gender and Climate Alliance (GGCA) Webinar Series” on issues that affect gender and climate change, including a special focus on the lead up to and beyond the UNFCCC COP21 in Paris.Gender-responsive finance mechanisms related to climate change are critical to establishing sound policies and on-the-ground action and community involvement that achieves gender equality and addresses climate change.Join us as three special guest panellists present and discuss their work and views with you, a live participatory audience, on the most pressing gender-finance mechanisms for COP21 and beyond.
