The Gender Just Climate Solutions Awards for 2023 are now open for applications!

The Women and Gender Constituency (WGC) and WECF International are happy to announce that the call for applications for our annual Gender Just Climate Solutions Awards is now open!

(You can apply in French, English, Spanish or Arabic by clicking the link you find at the bottom of this page)


The Gender Just Climate Solutions Awards are granted every year to grassroots initiatives and non-governmental organisations tackling the climate crisis while promoting gender equality. These solutions are examples of climate-resilient and transformative development models that bring multiple social and environmental benefits. They contribute to raising the ambition for the achievement of the 1.5-degree target by 2030.

Three winners are selected by a diverse group of jury members following open and transparent criteria and are announced during an official, high-level ceremony at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP).

Winning initiatives are showcased across three different project categories:

  1. Non-technical – climate solutions with a women or gender perspective (e.g. in area of efficiency, consumption changes, resilience and capacity building etc.)
  2. Technical – climate solutions with a women or gender perspective (e.g. in area of renewables, energy or adaptation technologies etc.)
  3. Transformational – climate initiatives with a women or gender perspective (e.g. addressing governance, institutional / societal change etc.)

Each winner receives a €5000 monetary award, a chance to attend COP28, which will be held in Dubai this year, fully covered travel, and enter our long-term mentoring programme which helps them strengthen and upscale their outstanding actions. Up to 20 nominees’ projects are presented in the Awards publication, on our online platforms and at the Awards Ceremony during the COP.
