Strengthening Gender and Youth Engagement in Climate Action: A Focus on NDC Implementation

The Commonwealth Secretariat’s approach on mainstreaming gender into climate change action, through its Commonwealth Climate Finance Access Hub (CCFAH), includes supporting member countries in the development of funding proposals which integrate youth analysis and gender action plans, aimed at delivering gender-responsive actions in their implementation. The CCFAH also provides technical assistance to support the accreditation process of eligible national entities to international climate financing institutions.

This event will seek to discuss the current role women and young people play in the drafting and revision processes of NDCs as well as the scope for increased involvement in the implementation of NDCs. The outcomes of this discussion between young people and gender practitioners will seek to contribute to the framework for establishing a clear and robust roadmap for the mainstreaming of gender and young people in the NDC revision and implementation processes across member countries.
