Plans Underway to Implement Gender Roadmap on Climate Change

Plans are now underway to implement the Paris accord and Nigeria's Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs), as the federal authorities have began moves for the creation of a National Gender Roadmap on climate change, which will mainstream gender concerns into national policies, plans and programmes at all levels.

The proposed roadmap will ensure that Nigeria address gender equality in climate change initiatives. In fact, more than 50 decisions of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) now support the recognition and integration of gender considerations.

Built into these decisions are the programmes and reporting mechanisms designed to support and promoted countries mitigation efforts such as the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), which offers developed countries an opportunity to earn credit by implementing emissions reduction projects in developing nations.
