Side Event Room, Bieszczady (Zone H)
CoP24, Katowice, Poland 

Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), in partnership withCARE International, is organising side event at the UNFCCC Conference of Parties (CoP) in Katowice. The event, titled ‘The GlobalAdaptation Goal and the Importance of Gender Transformative Resilience Finance’, seeks to propose a conceptual framework to implement the global goal on adaptation and explore opportunities to scale-up efforts to close the global adaptation funding gap while helping women and girls devote more time to activities—such as education, paid work, political and public participation – that fulfils a range of development priorities. 

It will also provide an opportunity to share lessons from emerging partnerships, mechanisms and approaches for supporting women and their communities in the race for resilience.
