The 56th session of the subsidiary bodies will take place at the World Convention Center Bonn, Germany.
The event, to be held on June 14, 11.30 am - 1.00 CEST, will showcase actions from different stakeholders to advance the Gender Action Plan & national climate roadmaps. CGIAR GENDER will further present new evidence from a hotspot mapping methodology that has revealed where climate change hits women the hardest, thereby providing direction where investments in actions to address these inequalities should focus on.
- Inform decision-making bodies, policymakers, and practitioners on the cross-cutting benefits of locally owned and gender-responsive climate mitigation and adaptation actions
- Underline the need to support the collection of evidence base and disaggregated data to demonstrate the impact of gender-responsive solutions
- Build bridges and open new spaces for exchange experiences and views among local practitioners, researchers, and policymakers
- Contribute to the GAP mandate and review (focusing on Activities A4, B3 and D4) through the dissemination of local good practices that can be replicated in regional and national contexts.
