The role of women’s leadership and gender- responsive parliaments in climate action

The annual IPU-UN Women Parliamentary Meeting at The Commission on the Status of Women, held for over 10 years, is the forum for parliamentarians to contribute to the Commission’s work, ensuring that the issues it considers each year include a parliamentary perspective. The theme of the 2022 meeting, which was linked to the priority theme, was “The role of women’s leadership and gender-responsive parliaments in climate action”.

The report of the meeting features results of discussions between parliamentarians from around the world and focuses on the links between women’s political leadership and climate action. It also includs concrete examples of initiatives where women MPs are leading on climate change policy, and where parliaments are leading on internal efforts to shift towards greener, more environmentally friendly processes and functions.
