The Regional Meeting on Climate Change and Gender Equality will be held virtually at various sessions throughout September 2021 (a total of 8 sessions every Tuesday and Thursday during the month). These sessions will showcase the experiences, good practices, challenges and opportunities that seek to integrate gender equality in climate action in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) and the roadmap of the Gender Action Plan (GAP) of the Framework Convention on the United Nations on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

It is organised by the government of Chile in its capacity as COP25 Presidency through its Ministries of the Environment, Foreign Relations, Women and Gender Equity and is developed thanks to the support of the European Union, through its EUROsociAL+ and EUROCLIMA + programmes, with technical support from ECLAC as key strategic partners in climate action, joining up the dots between the 2030 Agenda and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. The project also has the collaboration of the United Nations System of Chile, with financial contribution from the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.

The meeting is aimed at decision-makers at a national, regional and global level, the academic community, the media and civil society.
