This COP22 side event presents a global exchange of approaches to gender and social inclusion within national climate policy, focusing on processes and outcomes. It aims to generate a better understanding of what policies, institutions, incentives and accountabilities need to be in place to ensure success in implementing the Paris Agreement.
