Report on the Current Context of Gender Integration in Climate Governance

Climate change—of recognized anthropogenic origin—is one of the most crucial problems on the global agenda and one of the factors that most puts sustainable human development in the 21st century at risk. Their impacts are becoming increasingly tangible and, therefore, countries must define and implement public policies and plans derived thereof to mitigate the causes, reduce their conditions of vulnerability and strengthen mitigation and adaptation actions, in an environment of good governance and co-responsibility, ensuring the participation of all interested or affected parties.

The relationships between climate problems and economic, social and environmental aspects comprises a complex matrix of interrelationships with heterogeneous causalities, ranging from both the human and environmental dimensions and from the economic and social aspects segregated at different socioeconomic levels.
