Climate Adaptation Challenges from a Gender Perspective

Climate Adaptation Challenges from a Gender Perspective

CSO Messages for Rio 20

In keeping with the 2011 CSW's emerging issue, “women and sustainable development”, this workshop focuses on adaptation to climate change, particularly for women farmers. Two interlocking themes for discussion are:
1) women's rights and gender mainstreaming in the adaptation process, and
2) climate finance proposals.
 
The outcome will be sets of recommendations on both themes, including the design of climate and gender justice criteria for assessing financing proposals. The recommendations will be distributed to the CSW and citizens' groups as suggested contributions to the Rio +20 preparations.
