Ireland’s role in championing gender-responsive climate action, in policy and development programmes

About this video

Michelle Winthrop explains the National Strategy for women and girls in Ireland and connects this strategy to the National Climate Action Plan. She stresses the need for more data and research on how climate affects women and men differently; what role women have in society, at all levels and in all sectors.  For this it is important to ensure that women’s voices are heard, which can be achieved by focusing on localized actions, with spending targets and gender sensitive governance and accountability frameworks. National Plans must be flexible and capable of responding to emerging trends.
