Gender smart climate finance: Unlocking an inclusive and sustainable future
Tuesday 9 November 2021 – 12:15pm to 1:15pm
About this event
Join us at COP26 for the launch of the Gender Lens Climate Investing Guide by the 2X Climate Finance Taskforce, an initiative powered by British International Investment, EIB and EBRD, to leverage the power of gender-smart investments for climate action.
Climate change risks disproportionately affect women because of pre-existing gender inequalities when it comes to asset ownership, access to information, labour availability, financial and market access. Understanding and addressing the cause of specific gender-based vulnerabilities in the design of adaptation interventions is crucial to their success.
The three institutions have co-developed the Guide, which provides extensive tools and analysis, as well as relevant case studies, to support investors to identify opportunities and mitigate risks in gender and climate financing. It also includes sector specific and thematic guidance notes to help investors mainstream gender in their climate finance investments.
