EGI Datasets to be Presented at COP21

The IUCN Global Gender Office has developed new Environment and Gender Index (EGI) datasets in preparation of UNFCCC COP21. This data and accompanying factsheets will be shared and promoted at COP21 in Paris this week and next. To learn more about GGO’s priorities and schedule at COP21, read this post.

With some of the best data to date on how countries are realizing their commitments to environmental sustainability and women’s empowerment, the EGI found that countries which take seriously their commitments to advancing gender equality in environmental arenas are making strides toward long-term wellbeing for all their citizens. Since 2013, the EGI team has been expanding the EGI to a global dataset and developing more indicators to close the wide data gaps in this field.
