(13 October 2021) With the increased recognition of the important role social protection plays in securing household and gender-equitable security and response to shocks, the webinar will feature a panel of leading experts on gender, climate change and social protection. These experts will convene to investigate what and how current social protection policies and programmes have addressed climate change impacts, and how gender responsive and age sensitive they are or not. It will discuss:
- the intersections between gender, social protection and climate change
- the role social protection can and does play in addressing climate change impacts on women, children and vulnerable communities, and
- the agenda ahead for building on opportunities to address the current and future climate crisis from the perspective of gender-equal and sustainable development.
This event is jointly hosted by FCDO and UNICEF-Innocenti. It has been generously funded by the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland's Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) as part of the Gender-Responsive Age-Sensitive Social Protection (GRASSP) research programme.
