STAKEHOLDERS’ CONSULTATION ON THE REPORT ON
01 August 2022
We are collaborating with the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) and UN Women to conduct an assessment on ‘The State of Gender Equality and Climate Change in South Asia and Hindu Kush Himalayan Region’ under the EmPower – Women for Climate Resilient Societies project, jointly implemented by UN Women and UNEP and funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida).
The report will present data, conduct analysis, and document evidence on the state of play concerning gender equality and climate change in the region to increase national and regional knowledge and stimulate dialogue. The report will also help stimulate appropriate actions by regional organisations, governments, and financing institutions for reducing gendered vulnerabilities to climate change. The findings from the research will be presented at a regional dialogue to foster knowledge sharing and capacity development.
Along with our collaborators, we have prepared the first draft of the report with inputs from stakeholders from the 10 countries covered. To strengthen regional collaboration and ownership of the report, we are organising a stakeholders’ consultation to receive feedback on the findings of the report from a diverse range of experts from government bodies, academia, the civil society, and think tanks working in the sectors of climate change, agriculture, energy, and water. The event will serve as an open peer-review process for the report to enhance its quality and ensure the uptake of the recommendations.
