Regional African Training before Climate Summit COP 22

Women Environmental Programme (WEP), convened a 2-day training for expert women Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in Africa, from 4th-5th November 2016 in Marrakech, Morroco. The training was aimed at providing focused training to the expert women’s CSOs who will later share the lessons learnt with other CSOs at the national levels to enhance their capacity to monitor the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals.

The training was used to strategize on how to engage in the Twenty Second meeting of the Conference of Parties (COP22) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change that was holding in Marrakech.

This training, co-organised by WEP and WECF, was part of the activities of the Women2030 project -an EU funded coalition of 5 global and regional women and gender networks (WECF; Women Environmental Programme, WEP; Global Forest Coalition, GFC; Gender and Water Alliance, GWA; and Asia Pacific Forum on Women, Law and Development, APWLD) working towards the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals in 52 countries of the world.

The 2-day intensive training took participants through issues such as:  concept of gender and gender mainstreaming in policies, programmes and legislations; gender-responsive assessments; gender budgeting; Sustainable Development Goals, SDGs; policy analysis, monitoring and advocacy related to SDGs and climate agreements; financial management; and media training.

After the training, WEP and her partner expert CSOs from Africa joined other members of the Women and Gender Constituency at Bab Ighli, Marrakech, Morocco, to engage in the twenty second session of the Conference of Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP22); the twelfth session of the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP 12); and the first session of the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Paris Agreement (CMA 1).

The training, co-organised by WEP and WECF, was part of the activities of the Women2030 project -an EU funded coalition of 5 global and regional women and gender networks working towards the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals in 52 countries of the world.
