Gender equality in climate policy: Translating global commitments to national policy

This panel discussion will reflect on the likely extension of the Lima Work Programme on Gender, a possible Gender Action Plan, and the gender-responsiveness of policies and actions outlined by Parties in their Nationally Determined Contributions. The discussion will specifically touch on different ways in which the work of the convening organizations can support the various policy processes to promote gender-equitable change.
