All policy is gendered, and gender inequality and climate change are interconnected. In a society structured around hierarchical gender relations, policies will always have an unequal gendered impact. Ignoring this reinforces existing inequalities.

For example, failure to conduct a gender analysis of just transition proposals reinforces the gendered division of labour in carbon-intensive regions, prioritising alternative employment for men without addressing the paid and unpaid care work conducted by women in the same community.

This webinar addressed the conclusions of the ‘Climate and Gender Policy’ policy brief, which argues that gender equality and climate change should both be mainstreamed throughout all EU internal and external activities. The synergies between them should be fully explored in order to achieve the greatest co-benefits. Together, they will contribute to the systemic transformative change, which is essential to both gender and climate justice.

Integrating gender and climate mainstreaming into all policy sectors and at all levels of policymaking will contribute to the achievement of the EU’s SDG targets, the implementation of the UNFCCC commitments and its Gender Action Plan, and the EU’s own European Green Deal and Gender Equality Strategy.

Presenter:

  • Prof. Gill Allwood, Professor of Gender and Politics, Nottingham Trent University, and author of the ‘Climate and Gender Policy’ policy brief

Discussants:

  • Kata Tüttő, Deputy mayor of Budapest, vice-chair of the ENVE Commission, Committee of the Regions
  • Anke Stock, Senior Gender Expert and Programmes Coordinator, Women Engage for a Common Future

Moderation by Laeticia Thissen, Gender policy analyst, FEPS.

This webinar arises from the ‘Climate mainstreaming: Breaking down the silos’ series, intended to highlight the multidisciplinary approach required to fully understand the consequences of the climatic crisis we are living in.
