The project aimed at contributing to the development of strategies for climate protection as well as to climate change adaptation that integrate equitable opportunities. This involved:
- Networking and providing assistance for key actors, women scientists in climate research, mitigation and adaptation,
- Continuing the development of existing instruments used to address gender in climate mitigation and adaptation,
- Using existing knowledge in the field of gender studies to shape climate-related technical and social transformative processes,
- The transfer and further practical development of the findings relating to equitable opportunities that emerged from the research partnership “nordwest2050 perspectives for climate-adapted innovation processes in the metropolitan region Bremen-Oldenburg in north-western Germany”.
What did the project involve?
- Workshops with experts from the field of climate mitigation/adaptation, as well as gender experts, who will discuss and develop practice-oriented courses of action for equitable opportunities to be integrated into climate research and politics,
- The creation of a German competence and expert network,
- The development of an interactive communication platform, as well as a brochure containing the results of the project and guidelines for implementing equitable opportunities in the field of climate change,
- A concluding conference in February 2016 with (international) experts from research, politics, administration and the field.
