Quick Analysis of Gender in UNFCCC Decisions

Looking at the data, significant progress toward, and gaps remaining for, gender-sensitive climate policy are evident:

  • Out of 59 current decisions that reference gender, 28 explicitly refer only to gender balance and enhancing women’s participation on boards and bodies. A further 12 decisions recognize both the need for gender balance and a gender-mainstream approach.
  • Adaptation is so far the area in which the most robust gender-sensitive language has been integrated, with a total of 16 decisions integrating gender references.
  • Out of the main areas of negotiations (adaptation, mitigation, finance, technology, capacity-building, as well as loss and damage), agriculture has no decisions that reference gender.
