Side event @COP27 - Climate change and gender-based violence as double threat to gender equality
The Belgian Advisory Council on Gender and Development invites you to the COP27 side event “Climate change and gender-based violence as double threat to gender equality.” on November 16 from 16:30 to 18:00 CET. (17:30-19:00 EET – local time)
Climate change exacerbates gender inequality and sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV). However, SGBV are too often left out of the climate policy agenda both at UNFCCC and national level. This event will take the form of a policy dialogue around this topic between actors in charge of climate policies, gender policies and development policies at the Belgian level. The event is articulated around the policy recommendations of the Advisory Council on Gender and Development on the nexus between gender-based violence and climate (available in French or Dutch).
