Climate Change and Gender Equality Initiative

The "Climate Change and Gender Equality" initiative comes under the generous patronage of the "Mother of the nation", and in cooperation between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, the General Women's Union, and the United Nations Women's Liaison Office in the GCC countries.

This initiative coincides with the efforts of the UAE and its preparations to host the twenty-eighth session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change “COP28”, to support global efforts to confront the repercussions of climate change and to involve women as an active and influential party in the global climate change work system to enhance environmental protection. And to reach sustainable solutions for the benefit of future generations by reviewing a rich set of discussions and proposals, which embodies the growing global awareness of the relationship between gender and climate change.
