Newly published: the Gender Vision of the Mitigation Action Facility
The Mitigation Action Facility supports the implementation of sustainable development co-benefits which are associated with Projects and go beyond the reduction of GHG emissions. These co-benefits include contributions to socio-economic, ecological, and institutional development, including gender-responsiveness and social inclusion. In September 2022, the Mitigation Action Facility has introduced a Gender Vision with the objective to advance gender equality and social inclusion in climate action, and beyond. Gender equality and social inclusion considerations should be mainstreamed into the entire project cycle to ensure that gender co-benefits are obtained. As such, the Mitigation Action Facility’s approach goes beyond the mere acknowledgement of gender- and social inequalities but aims at responding to the identified inequalities through concrete measures and activities to be realized during project implementation.
The Mitigation Action Facility is a joint initiative of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK), UK Department for Energy Security & Net Zero (DESNZ), the Danish Ministry of Climate, Energy and Utilities (KEFM), the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA), the European Union and the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF).
