Climate Alliance events awarded as gender-balanced

Two side events of Climate Alliance at the UN Climate Change Conference on 7 December 2018 have been awarded as gender-balanced by the UNFCCC secretariat. These are the events “Local Climate Action: The Practices Behind the Numbers” together with Climate Alliance Italy, Groupe Energies Renouvelables and GERES as well as “The powers of water - on the way to the sustainable use of nature's driving force” together with INFOE and ASTM.

As a pilot for COP24 the UNFCCC secretariat is pleased to introduce #ActOnTheGAP Action List to encourage equal participation in climate talks. COP24 side event organisers were invited to commit to achieving gender-balance in their panels. #ActOnTheGAP Action List showcases those side events where gender-balance among panellists was achieved and will be updated daily during the COP24 from 3 to 14 December 2018.
