MOMENTUM FOR CHANGE: WOMEN FOR RESULTS
On March 8, the International Womens Day, the UNFCCC Secretariat launched the call for applications for Momentum for Change: Women for Results.
The initiative recognizes the critical leadership and participation of women in addressing climate change, and is looking for inspiring examples of activities from around the world that demonstrate measurable impact on the ground and potential for scalability and transformational change. Momentum for Change: Women for Results is graciously funded by the Rockefeller Foundation.

Women for Results is part of the Momentum for Change initiative, which aims to provide a public platform to highlight broad-ranging climate change actions that are already achieving impacts on the ground, in addressing both climate change and wider economic, social and environmental issues. By demonstrating that climate action is achievable and economically attractive, and enhances efforts to drive sustainable development, Momentum for Change aims to inspire decision makers and the public at large to support immediate and ambitious climate action.
A small number of these activities will be chosen by the Momentum for Change Advisory Panel as part of the 2013 Momentum for Change "lighthouse activities", and will be presented during a special event at COP 19/CMP 9, in Warsaw, Poland.
