Shifting Narratives and Practices to Achieve Gender Just Climate Transitions

By Abdelrahman Al Tamimi, Erin Tansey, Shehnaaz Moosa, Stefania Barca, Zo Randriamaro, and Dunja Krause - United Nations Research Institute for Social Development, March 15, 2022

This CSW66 side event brings together insights from ecofeminist research in global North and South arguing that both narratives and practices must change to secure gender just transitions: ecofeminism offers powerful alternative narratives that value care for people and planet, in contrast to mainstream development. Much just transition policy attention still focuses on male-dominated, formal work such as coal mining. Who is represented in narratives for just low-carbon transitions makes a difference. Women’s voices and lived experiences need to influence debates and decision making to achieve gender-egalitarian practices and low-carbon transitions that contribute to climate action and justice.
