WEDO and IUCN, together with Women Environmental Programme (WEP) and other partners launched a diverse multi- stakeholder alliance to advance gender-just climate action at all levels through improved accessibility, understanding and application of gender-environment data.
The Gender- Environment Data Alliance (GEDA) is an initiative to curate, and communicate data, knowledge, and information needed to ensure gender-just climate action. As a membership Alliance, it will serve as a hub for diverse organizations working on the intersection of gender and environment through a data lens, and with a special focus on climate resilience.
By leveraging the networks of its membership, the Alliance will have vast access to diverse stakeholders who can participate in mobilizing, curating, communicating, applying, and learning from gender and environment data. Members may also engage in capacity and skills building at multiple levels, from grassroots practice to national implementation. This expansive membership will strengthen skills building of national partners, while Data Fellows enhance synthesis of key data to inform gender-responsive policy and programming.
We cannot build feminist policies without data at the nexus of gender, environment and climate. Hence, the launch of the Gender Environment Data Alliance (GEDA) with a multi-stakeholder alliance for strengthening and informing feminist climate action.
