Transformative Pathways – @ COP27 Side Event

16 November 2022 @ 14:30 - 15:30 CET

TRANSFORMATIVE PATHWAYS: Climate and gender-just alternatives to intersecting crises

This year, with the support of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), we launched a publication showcasing the contribution of local initiatives to climate change mitigation and gender equality. For this, we analysed the Agenda 2030 and the Paris Agreement from a climate justice and ecofeminist perspective to highlight alternative pathways to achieving them. This publication proposes gender-specific targets for each of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that challenge current production and consumption patterns, foster equity, and strive for peace. This publication is a tool to inform policymakers, civil society organizations, and practitioners about alternative and transformative models for tackling climate change. This is inspired by four gender-just climate initiatives in the Global South. The leaders of these organizations will showcase their exemplary work, methods, and lessons learned.  

This event will open a learning space for policymakers, practitioners, and leaders of gender-just climate solutions to talk more broadly about their experiences and lessons learned over the years in their community work for mitigation with a gender focus. 


  • Promote and disseminate gender-specific targets to assess the multiple benefits of local climate mitigation solutions across the Sustainable Development Goals  
  • Underline the need to strengthen capacity-building and investment for gender-transformative climate initiatives that actively contribute to changing power dynamics and ensuring women’s rights while engaging in mitigation or adaptation efforts. 
  • Build bridges and open new spaces for exchanging experiences and views among local practitioners, researchers, and policymakers around the cross-cutting benefits of locally owned and gender-responsive climate mitigation actions. 
  • Contribute to building the capacity of Parties delegates to mainstream gender in the national climate policies.
