The role of women’s leadership and gender-responsive parliaments in climate action
IPU – UN Women Annual Parliamentary Meeting (CSW66)
15:00 -17:30 CET
Bringing together parliamentarians from all around the world and recognizing the urgency for concrete and bold legislative actions towards women’s political participation and legal and policy initiatives for gender-responsive climate action, IPU and UN Women will organize the annual Parliamentary Meeting on the occasion of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) in March 2022 on the theme “The role of women’s leadership and gender-responsive parliaments in climate action”. The theme of the Parliamentary Meeting is in line with the priority theme of the 2022 66th CSW on Achieving gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls in the context of climate change, environmental and disaster risk reduction policies and programmes. The Meeting will provide an opportunity to contribute to the CSW’s debates from a parliamentary perspective.
In addition to the Parliamentary Meeting, the IPU is organizing a side event on gender-sensitive parliaments. This side event will be held on Tuesday 15 March, from 3.30 to 5.30 p.m. CET (10.30 to 12:30 a.m. ET), on the platform Zoom. Additional information will be made available in due course.
