Towards gender-transformative climate actions: Dialogues between Latin America and the Caribbean and the European Union

The struggle to promote gender equality and the commitment to and concern for the environment are two matters which occupy a central place in the agendas of the European Union (EU) and Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). Both regions have played a leading role in the implementation of Agenda 2030 and the principal Multilateral Environmental Agreements, including the Paris Agreement, as well as other political frameworks with wide global consensus such as the Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015- 2030 and the New Urban Agenda, among others. Given the importance of acting collectively to safeguard the environment and promote gender equality and women’s empowerment, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the EU-LAC Foundation made a commitment to hold a series of dialogues on action for gender and the climate between September and December 2022. This document presents the principal conclusions resulting from this series of dialogues in order to design and implement gender-transformative climate actions based on the exchange of experiences between experts from Latin America, the Caribbean and Europe.
