Negotiators at COP23 approved The Gender Action Plan (GAP), a long overdue agreement that more consciously includes women in all Paris Agreement processes. This plan will lead to the development of gender-responsive frameworks for climate action and an increase in women’s participation, capacity building, and knowledge-sharing in decision-making spaces. Some women have raised concerns about the lack of funding that has been allocated for the work the plan requires. Still, the GAP is a crucial step in the right direction toward ensuring gender equity in climate action. Photo credit: UNFCCC / CC BY-NC-SA
