Gender-Just and Community Rights Perspectives on Pathways to 1.5

9 May 2023

The latest IPCC reports paint a difficult path to 1.5C and we are already seeing the devastating effects of climate change at 1.2C increase. Policymakers continue to focus on carbon removals, offsets, and other false solutions while ignoring the real solutions and the need to cut emissions. How can we ensure a gender-just and rights-based approach to keep at a maximum of 1.5?

Please join us on Tuesday, May 9 at 12:00 – 13:30 UTC where we will take a critical look at the latest reports by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) from a gender and rights-based perspective.

The IPCC reports, especially on adaptation and mitigation, recognize that support for gender-just community conservation and restoration of forests and other ecosystems, including by strengthening land tenure rights, is one of the most effective ways to mitigate climate change. Join experts who will demystify and explain key IPCC issues related to land, forests, climate change and the rights of Indigenous Peoples and local communities, as well as the many false solutions being put forth through the increasing corporate capture of climate policy-making.

Register now to be part of the event—don’t miss this opportunity!

We hope to see you there. Please share this invitation with colleagues and friends. We will have simultaneous interpretation available between English, French and Spanish.
