Gender Day at COP19

Tuesday 19 November is designated Gender Day at COP19 in Warsaw

Efforts to strengthen gender balance, enhance the empowerment of women and advance gender-sensitive climate policy will be among the topics discussed at a range of side events occurring on Gender Day, Tuesday 19 Nov. Building on our climate justice principle to Highlight Gender Equality and Equity, the Foundation is participating in a number of events as part of Gender Day.

This morning the Foundation co-hosted An Intergenerational Approach to Climate Change – Galvanising Leadership for Urgent Action with Mr Marcin Korolec, Minister of the Environment, Poland and President of COP19/CMP9. Mary Robinson then participated in Gender and Climate Change – Vision 50/50 and later this afternoon she will join the the High Level Adaptation Forum organised by the UNFCCC which will envision resilience to safeguard the future.

Ahead of the events, listen to the voices of women who are coping with the impacts of climate change in their communities.
