- The pillars of gender and climate are interconnected yet largely operate in silos. To promote more work and outcomes through this dual lens stakeholders on both sides must actively seek out alliances and share required knowledge and tools. This must also include the voices of women on the ground who are addressing climate change.
- The panel highlighted opportunities that have been created for women in an increasingly digitised post-COVID world. Panelists felt that it will be crucial for stakeholders working on gender issues to consider how technology can be best used to include and amplify women’s voices, and ensure that certain groups are not sidelined.
- The business world is largely driven by financial outcomes, and therefore it is important for stakeholders advancing gender issues to create buy-in by demonstrating a strong business case for incorporating gender in business decisions.
