Gender and the Green Economy

Commitment by

United Nations Women

In 2013, The UN Women Fund for Gender Equality committed to investing in women's potential to contribute to, and benefit from, the growth of the green economy as a critical link in progress towards sustainable development and post-2015 development framework agenda. In its third Call for Proposals, the Fund will maintain its overall focus on women's economic and political empowerment, while opening up a special grant-making window, on the Green Economy and Gender in the Context of Sustainable Development, Natural Resource Management, and Climate Change. The Fund will invite civil society organizations to submit rights-based proposals for programs seeking to place gender equality and women's empowerment at the core of a transition toward a socially fair, equitable, and inclusive green economy and that promotes women as leaders, contributors, and beneficiaries of sustainable production and consumption patterns.
