Gender issues

Gender mainstreaming is defined by the EU Commission as ”the integration of the gender perspective into every stage of policy processes – design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation – with a view to promoting equality between women and men”,
The consortium notes that gender is not equal to biological sex. It relates to social and cultural practices, both within science and in society in general, which result in unequal distributions of opportunities, responsibilities, mental and material control of resources. Gender issues therefore go beyond counting the number of women, they also relate to research topics and structures. By using this larger understanding of gender the project will, when selecting stakeholders and DG employees to participate in the workshops and the conference, take into consideration the gender issue.
The proposed support action aims to fully emphazise the engagement of stakeholders for future policy development with regard to the international climate policy regime, to ensure a true co-production of knowledge, build competence/capacities and to secure take-up in the international climate policy process.
