Mitigation

Mitigation actions reduce the contribution of human activities to climate change (e.g. by reducing GHG emissions). To maximize returns, mitigation actions should incorporate gender equality into initiatives that generate high social benefits and can cut across gender, social, and economic lines while supporting economic activities and providing solutions towards poverty alleviation. Additionally, women are key players in many sectors that have opportunities for mitigation, namely, reforestation, management of local resources, and agriculture; including them in the decisionmaking processes for mitigation is essential to create sustainable, long-lasting solutions to climate change.
