Report launch and dissemination
Launch and dissemination of the country report
16 November 2021
In collaboration with UN Women and UN Environment Programme (UNEP), under the joint project “Empower Women for Climate-Resilient Societies,” funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA), we have completed the assessment report on the interlinkages of gender equality and climate change in Nepal.
The State of Gender Equality and Climate Change is a series of reports covering countries across the Asia-Pacific (Vietnam and Cambodia), and Nepal. The report raises awareness about the need for gender-responsive climate action, analyzes gendered impacts of climate change, and suggests ways to enhance and mainstream gender equality into climate-relevant sectoral policies and actions.
The objectives of the report are two-fold: 1. To strengthen country-driven processes by presenting evidence of the links between gender equality and climate change and analysing gendered impacts in the forestry, agriculture, energy and water sectors; and, 2. To provide country-specific recommendations on enhancing gender-responsive policy implementation and actions to further augment the integration of gender equality in climate-relevant policy areas.
The launch of the report will be followed by a discussion on the main findings and a summary for policymakers.
