GGKP webinar – Inclusive green economies: No just transition without gender equality

Why is gender equality essential for thriving, inclusive green economies?

What are the main barriers to women’s full participation, and how can we enable full and equal participation of women in an inclusive green economy?

Are there success stories for a gender equal just transition? What are the lessons learned?

How do systems, structures and procedures have to change to enable power-sharing at all levels of decision making, implementation and monitoring?

On 9 March (14:00-15:30 CET), join the GGKP and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit  (GIZ) for the webinar, Inclusive green economies: No just transition without gender equality. A panel discussion will explore why gender equality is central to a just transition and thriving green economies as well as to biodiversity, ecosystems and natural capital. It will spotlight burdens and barriers that impact meaningful participation of women, as well as existing initiatives to take action for gender equality in the context of inclusive green economic transformation.

This webinar will feature voices from the recently-launched GGKP Gender Expert Group – a keynote will explore how to strengthen the full and equal participation of women in inclusive green economies.

The GGKP has held two webinars on gender to date – you can watch the recordings at: Sustainability After COVID-19: Building gender equality into the response (2020) and Making Gender-Responsive Green Growth Happen (2019).
