About the Series
In August 2017, with the support of the Wallace Global Fund, WEDO and Both ENDS, as a member of the Global Alliance for Green and Gender Action (GAGGA), launched a new joint initiative: “Women Demand ‘Gender-Just’ Climate Finance”. The initiative aims to build capacity and knowledge to track, monitor and, most importantly, influence the projects and financial flows of the Green Climate Fund (GCF). In 2018, and with the hope of mobilizing further resources and support, the initiative is funding the direct participation of feminist and women’s rights activists in the work of the GCF, supporting regional feedback channels, working with women’s funds on strategies for direct access, and hosting a webinar series to take a deep dive into important aspects of the climate financing architecture, with the aim of ensuring this money reaches local women’s groups, that projects are designed to respond to the needs of communities, and that the work of the GCF respects human rights.
