Upscaling Gender-Just Climate Solutions –
Overcoming barriers to technology transfer and development from a gender-just approach

This publication is the outcome of two capacity building workshops co-organized by Women Engage for a Common Future (WECF) and the Climate Technology Centre & Network (CTCN) on up-scaling gender-just
climate solutions.

Among the participants were organizational leaders selected from among hundreds of submissions worldwide for the Gender-Just Climate Solutions Award by the UNFCCC Women and Gender Constituency (WGC); as well as several climate technology and gender experts invited by WECF and the CTCN.

The objective was to share lessons learned and best practices from climate initiatives around the world that integrate a gender-responsive, or even a gender-transformative approach, and to identify approaches to overcome barriers to up-scaling. WGC and the CTCN share the conviction that gender-responsive climate solutions ensure more effective and socially just climate policies and action.

The objective of the workshop was also to compile lessons learned and best practice experiences from the field. This resource guide intends to share those lessons widely. This resource guide entails the presentations and experience sharing of more than 10 gender-responsive climate initiatives, looking at challenges and lessons learned from different geographical, ecological and social contexts. The resource guide has been developed as a tool for our award winners and other organizations looking to upscale their gender-just climate solutions or projects.
