Women and girls are disproportionately impacted by the effects of climate change, and this is particularly true in least developed countries. It is vital to acknowledge women as agents of change for climate justice, and their experience and knowledge are crucial to developing adaptation and mitigation initiatives, and to decision making. This is recognized in the Gender Action Plan agreed on at COP25 and often highlighted by Sweden in international conversations on climate action. To what extent do words and agreements translate into gender responsive climate finance?

During COP26, Nordic Act Alliance members released the report From words to action: Lessons from Nordic efforts to integrate gender equality in climate finance. The report assesses the level of gender integration in the climate finance provided to developing countries by Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. The report uses data gathered by the OECD to understand the ways in which gender is being considered in climate-related development finance, and what needs to happen to improve the gender responsiveness of such projects.

In this event, key findings of the report will be presented and discussed, with a focus on Sweden’s efforts to integrate gender equality in its climate finance. Panelists will also reflect on the gender related debates and outcomes of COP26.

Presenters and panelists:

  • Margareta Koltai, Act Church of Sweden
  • Christopher Roy, INKA consulting, report author
  • Jennifer Unelius, Sweden’s UNFCCC Gender Focal Point
  • Amanda Liedgren, Policy Specialist, Sida
  • Charlotte dos Santos Pruth, Kvinna till kvinna and CONCORD Sweden
