The African working group on gender and climate change and the New Economic Partnership for Africa (NEPAD), separately held two side-events at the African Pavilion during COP21 in Paris. These events addressed the intersection of gender and climate change in Africa, specifically on the lack of gender disaggregated data which would better inform climate science reports and actions. Additionally, the sessions emphasized that climate funds, and especially the NEPAD climate fund established in 2012, should be more targeted at adaptation and mitigation measures supporting African women’s work in agriculture, value chains and their contributions towards climate solutions.
