Today, WEDO is proud to launch a four-week virtual training for women climate negotiators. The course, aimed primarily towards first-time negotiators from Least Developed Countries (LDCs), includes insights from leading women negotiators in the climate negotiations process, as well as weekly virtual in-person sessions. This initial training includes 80 women delegates from 57 countries.
The widespread and unprecedented impacts of climate change are already magnifying existing and overlapping inequalities. Achieving gender equality – in access to rights, resources and equal representation – is inextricable from the ability to sustainably mitigate, adapt and build resilience to climate change across our communities. Help us spread the word!
