On Thursday February 1, 2018, the Women’s Environment and Development Organization (WEDO) will be presenting a webinar on gender mainstreaming in global climate finance mechanisms:

Join us for the second session of our five part series on women’s rights and climate finance, aiming to build knowledge and power to ensure finance flows are benefiting local women’s groups, responding to community needs and respecting human rights.

This session will provide an overview of how gender equality has been mainstreamed into global climate finance mechanisms, including a deep dive on gender considerations under the Green Climate Fund by Liane Schalatek of the Heinrich Boell Foundation – North America. Participants in the session will have the opportunity to engage and share their experience of strategies and/or barriers that exist accessing climate finance at national level.

Register for the webinar here.

The webinar is the second in a series on women’s rights and climate finance. The first session in the series, Introduction to Climate Finance, took place on December 14, 2017. You can access the session archives at the WEDO website.
