The twenty-second session of the UNFCCC Conference of Parties (COP22) begins on Monday, November 7th in Marrakesh, Morocco. If you’re traveling to the COP, please join us on Tuesday, November 15th for Gender Day!
While the impacts of climate change are often experienced differently by men and women, with women disproportionately affected due to differing gender roles and existing gender inequalities, Gender Day at COP 22 / CMP 12 focuses on women as leaders, innovators, and agents of the transformational change that the challenge of climate change and achieving sustainable development demands.
