The Foundation EU-LAC and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) are pleased to announce the Third Dialogue on Climate Action and Women, focusing on “The transition to just and low-carbon economies and new gender-transformative development models”. The event will take place in hybrid format in both Spanish and English.
The EU-LAC Foundation and UNDP, being key actors in generating multi-stakeholder and multi-level dialogues on issues of utmost relevance for LAC and EU cooperation, propose to develop a series of inclusive inter-regional dialogues to identify common obstacles and opportunities and to bring to the fore good practices and innovative solutions that will enable progress towards gender equality and women's empowerment in Climate Action and Disaster Risk Reduction. The dialogues aim to inform decision-makers about promising interventions and practices that have the potential to being upscaled and to strengthen bi-regional cooperation programmes and public policies.
The series of dialogues are articulated around three main themes:
- Leadership and inclusion of women in decision-making on implementation of climate actions.
- Emerging issues in gender and climate change: just energy transition, electric mobility, nature-based solutions, climate resilience and gender-transformative risk management.
- The transition to just and low-carbon economies and new gender-transformative development models.
