As countries gather at UN Climate Change Conference (COP28) in the UAE, where the highly anticipated first-ever global stocktake is expected to conclude. We are pleased to share – A rapid analysis of the gender intentionality of Africa’s Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).
This paper investigates gender intentionality using several dimensions including gender-responsive budgeting in African NDCs. More importantly, the paper explores whether countries are mobilising and allocating climate finance with a gender lens, and it makes recommendations for governments, financiers, and investors to ensure climate finance is not gender neutral.
African countries are called upon to reflect on key gaps articulated in this paper, and work towards accelerating gender-responsive climate finance actions.
