Guide and Acknowledgments


The Gender Climate Tracker App has a clear and user-friendly structure with six key sections and three substantive sections (Gender Mandates, Women’s Participation Statistics and Nationally Determined Contributions).

  1. Introduction - A foreword and introduction to gender and climate change.
  2. Gender Mandates in Climate Policy - A compilation of UNFCCC decisions that contain specific references to gender equality and identification of remaining gaps.
  3. Women’s Participation Statistics in Climate Diplomacy - Data on women’s participation on national delegations, as well as boards and bodies, at the major negotiating meetings of the UNFCCC from 2008-2019.
  4. Gender and Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) - Summaries of submitted NDCs and analysis to evaluate the extent to which they address women’s human rights and the linkages between climate change and gender more broadly.
  5. Resources - Additional resources and websites.
  6. About the App - How to use the app, next steps and abbreviations.

Each substantive section includes an introduction guiding the user through the data, a methodology and quick analysis. The app is updated on a regular basis. For comments or questions, please contact

Next Steps

The Gender Climate Tracker Platform will continue to be expanded to become an information hub for decision-makers and policy experts. The next phases include graphics to visualize and simplify the women's participation data and an open source platform to allow experts to add information. We hope this platform will be an open space for national level shadow reporting on implementation of the Paris Agreement from a gender equality and human rights perspective.
