– Women for Climate Justice is the global network of women and gender activists, and
gender experts from all world regions working for gender and climate justice.
to the gendercc Platform for Information, Knowledge,
and Networking on Gender and Climate Change
www.gendercc.net is our response to
the growing public attention to climate change, and the increasing need for
information about women’s perspectives and gender aspects in climate change
policies and measures.
The web site is based on the knowledge available through the gendercc
network, and is one element of an envisaged International Competence Centre
Gender & Climate Change (CCGCC).
With gendercc.net, we offer you information on:
- research on gender and climate change and related areas
- case studies that clarify and illustrate the gender
- activities and campaigns to make women’s contributions
to climate protection visible and further the integration of the gender
dimension in climate policy
- mechanisms and tools to put the integration of gender
dimensions in climate change policies and measures into practice.
The platform gendercc.net illustrates that a number of organisations and
institutions already stand up for a gender perspective in climate policy. It
serves as a networking platform for these organisations and gender &
climate experts, and is to assist those who want to become acquainted with the
issue as well as those who wish to enlarge upon it.
The knowledge base and information platform is work in progress, and we hope
it will continue to be. Not only are there bound to be resources we overlooked,
but also we anticipate that in the future more research will be available to be
taken on the platform and more activities will take place to spread information
We would like to decentralize this continuing work as much as possible, and
registered users will be able to feed literature or case studies into the
databases. This functionality is to be extended in the future to allow other
information to be entered, too.
You are cordially invited to share your own information through the gendercc
platform. Please contact us via email for registration.
We hope you gain a lot of insights while exploring the platform and look
forward to your comments and additions!
