Arab governments display foresight in climate change and gender

Amman, Jordan, 11 November 2009 – With a firm agreement elusive in the final days before the start of UN negotiations on climate change in Copenhagen next month, the ability of local communities in the Arab region to fight the negative effects of climate change hang in the balance. In a region already burdened by conflict and water insecurity, the lack of an immediate, binding and adequately financed agreement in Copenhagen that allows for action to be taken on the ground will prove to be disastrous. …

Mainstreaming Gender in Climate talks

Background: For many years, there has been an assumption that the negative impacts of climate change and the efforts to mitigate them have similar effects on both men and women. However, the world has progressively recognized that women and men experience climate change differently, and that gender inequalities worsen women’s coping capacity.

Copenhagen COP 15

Insider's view: from Barcelona to Copenhagen

The Climate Change Talks held in Barcelona (2-6 November) under the auspices of the UNFCCC ended with the Chairmen of the two main negotiating streams expressing confidence that ‘a strong outcome of COP15 at Copenhagen can be achieved that is balanced, fair, ambitious and effective’.
