This high-level event will showcase and reward gender just climate actions that are implemented on all continents and can be scaled up to attain a significant impact. With the Gender Just Climate Solutions Awards, we aim at inspiring world leaders and key decision makers to implement more effective and transformative climate policies.

Showcasing solutions

In 2015, WECF and the Women & Gender Constituency launched its first ‘Gender-Just Climate Solutions’ Awards. The Women and Gender Constituency, along with other women, gender, and human rights advocates, has been actively pushing world leaders to ensure just and equitable climate policies that put respect of people’s rights and the integrity of the planet first, while responding to injustice among and within countries in relation to climate impacts and resilience. We know the solutions to a more sustainable future already exist – and it is time to showcase them far and wide, and demand change!

Since 2015 and the Paris Agreement, the Gender Just Climate Solutions program aims at showcasing, amplifying and scaling gender-responsive transformative climate initiatives. These locally-driven solutions promote democracy, making gender equality and women’s rights central to just climate action. All the solutions are displayed in this database, where they can be sorted by date and countries.

Last year, we celebrated the 5th anniversary of the Gender Just Climate Solutions Awards in a special event part of the UN Climate Change Dialogues 2020, “Gender-transformative climate action from the ground” on December 2nd. This celebration, together with the launch of the special edition of the 2020 Gender Just Climate Solution Publication, presented locally owned solutions that have demonstrated success on the ground and have potential for shifting power relations, ensuring women’s rights and leadership as well as positive impact for our planet.
