Women as agents of change: towards a climate and gender justice approach

Produced by the Government of Ireland, this background paper highlights the linkages between gender equality and climate change. It draws on lessons from our international development cooperation programme, Irish Aid, and aims to raise awareness of the urgency of reflecting gender in efforts to address climate change. It seeks to challenge decision-makers and practitioners to change how they work at global and local levels to unlock the potential of women as agents of change, in the implementation of the Paris Agreement and achievement of the SDGs.

This paper is complemented with a short gender and Climate Policy Brief
