‘Gender Climate Tracker’ app to track gender disparities in climate policy

The Women’s Environment and Development Organization (WEDO) released a mobile app at COP22 for “decision-makers and advocates” to track and address gender disparities in the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

The app features “Women’s Participation Statistics in Climate Diplomacy” and “all official UNFCCC decisions that contain a reference to gender supporting decision-makers, negotiators advocates in mapping current decisions.”  

The women’s advocacy group partnered with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Finland, and the Global Gender and Climate Alliance (GGCA). They also received support from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Switzerland in launching the app.

“The application will empower decision-makers and advocates alike to translate policies into action and hold governments’ accountable,” WEDO wrote in their announcement. “By compiling policies, mandates, research, decisions and actions related to gender and climate change, the app aims to highlight key gender entry points to facilitate implementation.”
