Gender Data for Climate Action: COP28 and Beyond

Topic: Using Gender Data
Type: Policy Brief
Author: data, IISD, IUCN, and WEDO Date: November 2023

Gender equality has been identified as a thematic priority within the COP28 agenda, with the aim to ensure women’s equal participation in UNFCCC processes, promote gender-responsive climate action, and drive the systematic transformation needed to achieve the objectives of the Paris Agreement. Achieving an inclusive and transformative COP28 agenda – and Parties’ ultimate ability to take gender responsive climate action – depends upon leaders’ prioritization of the collection, analysis, and use of gender data for decision-making.

Our COP28 policy brief, created in partnership with the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD), International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), and Women’s Environment & Development Organization (WEDO), outlines why gender data matters for COP28 and how Parties can strengthen gender data for climate action beyond COP28.
