The Full View: Ensuring a comprehensive approach to achieve the goal of gender balance in the UNFCCC process

Authors/editor(s): UN Women and Mary Robinson Foundation - Climate Justice

This research report builds on an earlier report published in May 2013 entitled, ‘The Full View: Advancing the goal of gender balance in multilateral and intergovernmental processes’, which highlighted best practices and lessons learned from various sectors to promote women’s voice and agency and proposed a set of recommendations on ways to advance the goal of gender balance by Parties and observers to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

This second edition examines developments in the equal participation and representation of women in decision-making processes and seeks to expand on the lessons learned for the achievement of positive outcomes to promote women’s voice and agency.
