WECF (Georgia) demands the implementation of a gender responsive climate policy in Georgia as outlined in its National Determined Contribution (NDC), committing to Human rights and implementing gender just climate actions, while contributing to the prevention of global warming of more than 1.5 degrees. 

The WECF Georgia team Anna Samwel and Ani Muradashvili explain in “Caucasus Digest” why and how Gender should be integrated Georgia’s Climate policy.  The article addresses the lack of gender responsiveness and highlights the necessity for the involvement of women in climate policies and actions in Georgia. Based on analyses of existing documents and policies related to climate change, this paper suggests that the Georgian government should develop gender-responsive climate policies through an intersectional approach, building capacity on gender mainstreaming in the relevant sectors, upscaling existing best practices by civil society, grassroots organizations and national experts, and conducting deep gender analysis as stipulated by the NDC.
