Parallel to the first official Conference of the Parties (COP1) a huge International Women's Forum under the title 'Solidarity in the Greenhouse' took place. In the successive COPs, women's issues were missing. Only during COP 8 in New Delhi a side event on gender and energy/climate change took place.
Since COP9, genanet is re-organising women's involvement in the UNFCCC COPs and lobbying for the integration of gender aspects. Out of this work, the international network GenderCC - Women for Climate Justice developed whose members presented their first jointly prepared position papers at COP13 in Bali 2007.
In cooperation with other women and/or environmental organisations - among others the German League for Nature Protection, Women in Europe for a Common Future or the working Group "women" in the German NGO Forum on Environment and Development - genanet developed a statement on the implementation of chapter K "Women and the Environment" of the Platform for Action of the 4th World Conference on Women. The statement is focusing exclusively on the situation in Germany, but the demands are true also for other regions.
