A person who has a strong track record in emphasising the inclusiveness of women in climate action.
Women hold up half the sky, so it is essential they have equal representation in global efforts to tackle climate change. Women and girls are the hardest hit by dramatic climate shifts, so they should have a bigger stake in devising ways to reduce them. This award is designed to showcase how women are already acting as leading decision makers, educators and experts creating successful solutions to climate change. Although not just open to women, we want this award to show how efforts to empower women are already bearing fruit. GCF is the first climate finance fund to mainstream gender perspectives, and we want to strengthen this proud tradition.
