Gender Balance and Women's Participation

Gender balance is an important indicator of women’s participation in the decision making process. Women continue to be underrepresented in many delegations, namely in higher levels of leadership in negotiations and in countries that face the highest risk in the face of climate change. It is essential for women to be included in the climate change decision making process so that solutions may properly serve all those affected by climate change. Gender balance is a tool for the achievement of gender equality, and it is also a crucial step in reaching an overall socially just, ambitious and effective climate agreement.
