Efforts to build resilience will not be effective, sustainable, and will fall short of their moral obligation unless they move away from current development pathways and deliberately address gender and social inequalities.
As part of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Race to Zero Dialogues, this event will explore the challenges and opportunities for gender-responsive transformation and effective climate action with a focus on resilience and social protection.
Three different times are provided for this event, each of which will include different guest experts and topics targeted to the location of its audience.

Co-hosted by the Women and Gender Constituency (WGC) and the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD), these interactive dialogues will feature conversations with a diverse group of prominent speakers and allow time for discussion and reflections in smaller groups.
To drive the transformation that is needed to build resilient economies, ecosystems, and societies– while ensuring that no one is left behind–stakeholders must show leadership and commitment in promoting gender-responsive, participatory, and representative governance approaches.
