EMPLOYMENT: Consultant: Coordinator – Global Gender & Climate Alliance
The Global Gender and Climate Alliance (GGCA) was formally launched in December 2007 during the UNFCCC climate change talks in Bali, Indonesia, by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), and the Women’s Environment and Development Organization (WEDO). Over the past two years, the GGCA has grown to include 13 UN agencies and 25 international civil society organizations working together to ensure that climate change policies, decision-making, and initiatives at global, regional and national levels are gender responsive.
The GGCA works on four complementary objectives:
- Integrate a gender perspective into policy and decision making in order to ensure international mandates and other legal instruments on gender equality are fully implemented;
- Ensure that financing mechanisms on mitigation and adaptation address the needs of poor women and men equitably;
- Build capacity at all levels to design and implement gender-responsive climate change policies, strategies and programmes; and
- Develop, compile, and share practical tools, information, and methodologies to facilitate the integration of gender into policy and programming.
