Egypt Meetings Sharm El Sheikh, 14-16 November 2022, during cop 27

It was great to see a day dedicated to the Gender Thematic Day on 14 Nov in the COP27, as part of the climate summit events hosted by Egypt in Sharm El-Sheikh. We presented our thoughts in a panel on “Private Sector Nexus: Women & Climate Change,” organised as a side event in the Green zone by the The National Council for Women on this day reflecting the commitment of the Egyptian Presidency to #ActontheGap as the event hashtag says. 

The session summarised with the need for putting women in the center of planning, capacity building, decision-making and responses in all walks of life, as also holding private sector accountable for gender equality policies, ensuring inclusive outcomes, equitable leadership and sustainable solutions to the climate crises.
