As the global community increasingly recognizes that advancing gender equality is imperative for meeting all related environmental and development goals, GGO supports Governments, institutions, networks and programmes to mainstream gender in a proactive and practical way. GGO has helped a wide range of partners develop, facilitate and implement gender-responsive policies, plans, programmes and projects, in a wide range of settings and across sectors.
Climate finance mechanisms
GGO has been influential in the development of gender perspectives and integration throughout climate finance mechanisms’ strategies, including those of the Climate Investment Fund (CIF) , Green Climate Fund (GCF) , and the Global Environment Facility (GEF) .
GGO also lends its technical expertise to harmonize policies and mandates among institutions, such as for the Rio Conventions (UNFCCC , CBD , UNCCD ) and for the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) , facilitating creation of cohesive and viable frameworks strategy with proven results of increasing gender considerations, actions and inclusion.
