Feminist climate justice: A framework for action

This paper describes how to achieve feminist climate justice through four interlinked dimensions (recognition, redistribution, representation, and reparation) and the principles of interdependence and intersectionality. It provides practical guidance on what countries need to do to transition to low-emission economies that are resilient to a changing climate, while recognizing the leadership of women, girls, and gender-diverse people in driving the change that is so urgently needed. It zooms in on the global food system as one illustration of how this framework can be applied and provides an analysis of the major barriers to accountability for gender-responsive climate action and how they can be overcome.

Emissions Gap Report 2023

The report finds that there has been progress since the Paris Agreement was signed in 2015. Greenhouse gas emissions in 2030, based on policies in place, were projected to increase by 16 per cent at the time of the agreement’s adoption. Today, the projected increase is 3 per cent. However, predicted 2030 greenhouse gas emissions still must fall by 28 per cent for the Paris Agreement 2°C pathway and 42 per cent for the 1.5°C pathway.

As things stand, fully implementing unconditional Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) made under the Paris Agreement would put the world on track for limiting temperature rise to 2.9°C above pre-industrial levels this century. Fully implementing conditional NDCs would lower this to 2.5°C.

The report calls for all nations to accelerate economy-wide, low-carbon development transformations. Countries with greater capacity and responsibility for emissions will need to take more ambitious action and support developing nations as they pursue low-emissions development growth.

The report looks at how stronger implementation can increase the chances of the next round of NDCs, due in 2025, bringing down greenhouse gas emissions in 2035 to levels consistent with 2°C and 1.5°C pathways. It also looks at the potential and risks of Carbon Dioxide Removal methods – such as nature-based solutions and direct air carbon capture and storage.

2023 WHO review of health in Nationally Determined Contributions and long-term strategies: health at the heart of the Paris Agreement

This report synthesizes information from the latest available NDCs, communicated by 193 Parties2 to the Paris Agreement and recorded in the official registry of the UNFCCC, as of 23 September 2022.3 The report also synthesizes information from the latest available LT-LEDS, communicated by 62 Parties to the Paris Agreement and recorded on the UNFCCC website, as of 23 September 2022.

 

The report builds on a 2019 WHO review of health in NDCs. The scope of indicators has been significantly expanded to capture progress in the quantity and quality of health measures in the NDCs. A total of 166 Parties have communicated a new or updated NDC since the 2019 WHO review, including nine Parties that have submitted an NDC for the first time. Wherever possible, the 2023 WHO review adheres to reviewing methodologies used by the UNFCCC, to allow for comparisons with other sectors and action areas.

 

This document is intended to complement the WHO guidance for healthy Nationally Determined Contributions and long-term strategies [in press] and aims to inform the design of health targets and policies in NDCs and LT-LEDS to the Paris Agreement.

The climate–care nexus: Addressing the linkages between climate change and women’s and girls’ unpaid care, domestic, and communal work

The transformation of societies and economies towards paradigms centred on interdependence, care, and sustainability is urgently needed. In this context, this working paper sheds light on emerging efforts to address women’s and girls’ unpaid care, domestic, and communal work in a dramatically changing climate.

The paper discusses the ways in which climate change and environmental degradation disrupt the care economy and increase and intensify women’s and girls’ unpaid care, domestic, and communal work. The paper analyses emerging national efforts to address unpaid care and domestic work through multilateral environmental agreements and valuing paid and unpaid care work in gender-responsive just transitions.

The paper concludes with recommendations for governments, international organizations, UN agencies, academia, and civil society at a key moment for rethinking the dominant development model based on the extraction and exploitation of natural resources, fossil fuels, and human lives, and for making caring for people and the planet a central concern.

Ensuring safe and regular migration for women and girls in the context of climate change

Climate change is a global emergency that puts the achievement of gender equality at great risk. As climate change intensifies around the world, many women and girls, especially those in situations of vulnerability, migrate in search of safety, livelihoods, and employment opportunities. Gender considerations shape the decision to migrate and the migration experience.

Greater collection and analysis of data is needed to ensure migration policies are responsive to the needs of women and girls migrating in the context of climate change. Existing international frameworks and mechanisms to manage safe and regular migration in relation to climate change are limited, and those that do exist have not fully mainstreamed gender equality considerations.

This policy brief explores the linkages among gender, migration, and climate change, and provides recommendations to policymakers and practitioners to ensure safe and regular migration for women and girls in the context of climate change.

Adaptation Gap Report 2023

The report – which looks at progress in planning, financing and implementing adaptation actions – finds that the adaptation finance needs of developing countries are 10-18 times as big as international public finance flows. This is over 50 per cent higher than the previous range estimate. This report identifies seven ways to increase financing, including through domestic expenditure and international and private sector finance. Additional avenues include remittances, increasing and tailoring finance to Small and Medium Enterprises and a reform of the global financial architecture. The new Loss and Damage fund will also need to move towards more innovative financing mechanisms to reach the necessary scale of investment.

Children displaced in a changing climate

The report analyses the most common weather-related hazards that lead to the
largest number of displacements: floods, storms, droughts and wildfires.
Together, these hazards account for over 99 per cent of all weather-related
displacements recorded by IDMC since 2016, while hazards such as extreme heat,
erosion and landslides, make up the rest.3 Due to lack of available data, the analysis
does not assess the full range of weather-related events that can contribute to
displacement– particularly in relation to slower-onset climate processes. Therefore,
these findings represent conservative estimates, and the actual numbers of
climate-related displacements of children are likely to be much higher.
These new insights can help governments, United Nations agencies, civil
society, and affected communities, to identify children at risk of weather-related
displacement, map the areas most affected and most importantly, target efforts
and resources to the most vulnerable, with the aim of protecting children’s
futures from the impacts of displacement as the climate continues to change.
