The global community is entering a crucial phase for implementation of the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change. Governments, UN officials and civil society organizations require tools and technical support to comprehend, track, translate and intervene in global policy processes.
WEDO, in partnership with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Finland and the Global Gender and Climate Alliance (GGCA), and with key support from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Switzerland launched its newest tool to support the efforts: The Gender Climate Tracker App and online platform.
The application will empower decision-makers and advocates alike to translate policies into action and hold governments’ accountable. By compiling policies, mandates, research, decisions and actions related to gender and climate change, the app aims to highlight key gender entry points to facilitate implementation.
“Successful implementation that leaves no one behind requires gender disaggregated data to identify the gender gaps and move away from tokenistic implementation of strategies by governments towards gender inclusion and well-being,” commented Bridget Burns, WEDO Director.
