Webinar | Progress made in advancing gender-responsive NAP processes

Dear colleagues,

The NAP Global Network will host its first-ever webinar in French on April 16. Join us for a debate on the progress made by countries in advancing gender-responsive NAP processes, featuring the experiences of Togo and Côte d’Ivoire.

This webinar will be in French only. Register here.

EVENT DATE: April 16, 2020

EVENT TIME: 3 pm (CET) | 9 am (EDT)

LOCATION: online

This year, countries are working to enhance their commitments to achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement. At the same time, the global community is engaged in a review of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action—the most ambitious plan ever agreed for achieving gender equality—25 years after its adoption. Climate change and gender inequality are increasingly seen as interconnected, requiring an integrated approach that builds climate resilience while also promoting human rights and justice, particularly for people who are marginalized. The National Adaptation Plan (NAP) process provides an unprecedented opportunity to reduce vulnerability to climate change, while also addressing social and gender inequalities.

In 2018, the NAP Global Network released its first synthesis report to highlight the challenges and opportunities faced by countries in addressing gender considerations in their NAP processes and make recommendations for taking this forward. Two years on, we see that significant progress has been made in certain areas, while progress is lagging behind in other areas.

This webinar will provide an overview of trends we identified in our second synthesis report on countries’ progress in advancing gender-responsive NAP processes. An interactive discussion will then highlight recent country experiences on the key steps they have taken to advance this agenda and the lessons learned.
