UNDP NDC Support Programme is organizing a global gender workshop on the NDC process from April 24-26 in Nairobi, Kenya. This event will gather the countries that are mainstreaming gender equality in their national climate actions and strategies through the Programme.

The participatory and interactive workshop will provide an opportunity for sharing of experiences, lessons learned and ways forward on gender-responsive NDC planning and implementation. Government representatives from the Ministries of Environment and Ministries of Gender and a representative from the project unit from 18 countries have been invited. Participants also include representatives from international organisations, development partners and other institutions involved in the NDC process. The countries are: Bhutan, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cote D’Ivoire, Ecuador, Ghana, Guatemala, Kenya, Lebanon, Nepal, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, Trinidad and Tobago, Uganda, Vietnam, Zambia.


  • Encourage and facilitate peer-to-peer exchange among countries to share experiences and lessons learned on integrating gender equality into NDC planning and implementation based on preliminary findings of their gender analyses.
  • Identify opportunities to integrate or strengthen gender equality considerations in the three works areas of governance, planning and policy, in order to consolidate a way forward for the short term, and for future enhanced NDC cycles.
  • Strengthen the linkages between gender-responsive NDCs to broad development benefits/SDGs
