Description:

The UNDP/UNEP Global Support Program for National Communications and Biennial Update Reports, GSP  is organizing the Regional Workshop on Supporting the integration of gender considerations into MRV/transparency processes in the Western Balkan Countries, hosted by the Republic of Macedonia,  with the purpose of bringing  together the Climate and Gender Focal Points from the Ministries and Institutions in Western Balkan countries,  to discuss the opportunities and the challenges to mainstream gender into the development process of National Communications (NCs) and Biennial Update Reports (BURs) to the UNFCCC, also in the light of the enhanced transparency framework established by the Paris Agreement and the Capacity Building Initiative for Transparency (CBIT).

In addition, countries will be able to identify key elements of an action plan to support achieving their commitment to work on this issue by applying the toolkit elaborated by the GSP in 2015, a “Gender responsive National Communications Toolkit[1] aimed at providing suggestions and guidance on integrating gender issues into NCs and BURs.

At the end of the meeting, countries are expected identify key elements of a gender roadmap/climate action plan, which will provide concrete steps - and identify responsibilities - aimed at integrating gender considerations into the next NC/BUR. While funding for the development of such roadmaps/work plans should come mostly from national NC/BUR resources, the GSP would facilitate South-South collaboration in 2018 among countries as well as provide technical support.
