3 December 2023 (Sunday)
Gender-just climate policy and finance: from barriers to actionable solutions
13:15-14:45 SE Room 7

Organizers: Global Alliance for Green and Gender Action (GAGGA), Fundo Casa Socioambiental, Green Livelihood Alliance and NTFP-EP Asia

Online participation: Register here

Women-led community-based organizations (CBOs) find current financing and decision-making processes almost inaccessible. Yet, it’s these very organizations that are spearheading the most holistic and effective gender-just climate solutions.

Join us for a crucial conversation that moves beyond identifying barriers and paves the way for actionable, concrete solutions. In this discussion you will:

Hear from local CBO and NGO representatives how they implement gender just climate solutions.

Learn more about the current obstacles they face to access finance and meaningfully engage in decision-making processes.

Engage in an interactive dialogue between practitioners, governmental representatives and philanthropic donors to make gender-just climate policy and finance a reality.

Nida Collado (from Palawan, Philippines) will speak at this event while Dazzle Labapis (programme officer, NTFP-EP Asia) will moderate the event.

4 December 2023 (Monday)
Climate Finance for Forests, Biodiversity & Food Security with IP&LCs: What can we do better?
16:00-17:00IUCN Pavilion (Ground floor of Thematic Area 4: Room, TA4-135 in the Blue Zone)

Organizers: IUCN-NL, WECF, and Green Livelihoods Alliance

During the side event, a diverse panel including grassroots women, Indigenous and local community representatives will discuss how to ensure that climate finance is directed to the local level. Focusing on locally-led adaptation and mitigation principles, particularly the vital importance of being gender-responsive, we will address how financial mechanisms (including for example the Loss and Damage Fund) can better support communities at the frontline of tropical forest and biodiversity stewardship and conservation.

Nolsita Siyang (Palawan, Philippines) will speak at this event.
