Oct 23 Gabe Chan on Gender Policies in Climate Finance

A Freeman Global Policy Seminar
Assistant Professor Gabe Chan, Humphrey School

Issue Linkage in the Climate Regime: Gender Policies in Climate Finance

Tuesday, October 23
12:45–2:00 p.m.
Humphrey School Room 35

Professor Chan will discuss the history of gender mainstreaming in international development policy generally and in climate finance. He will address why gender mainstreaming is occurring in climate finance and to what extent the linkage of gender to climate is appropriate and/or useful.

Multiple international agreements, such as the 2015 Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement, express the norms of respecting and promoting the human rights of women and men and advancing gender equality. Studies show that climate change has disproportionate impacts on women due to socioeconomic status, restrictive gender norms, and lack of access to resources and services, but also that including women as stakeholders in planning and implementation leads to improved project outcomes. 
Refreshments will be served. All are welcome!

The Orville and Jane Freeman Chair and Freeman Center for International Economic Policy were established in the 1990 to honor the achievements of two great social and political leaders. The Center addresses major challenges of an increasingly interdependent global economy and crafts effective policy responses.
Workshops on Global Economic and Other Policy Issues

The Freeman Center has sponsored a bi-weekly workshop on global economic and other policy issues since 1991. These recognized forums provide a place where researchers on international policy issues and Minnesota's business and public sectors can share ideas.

Unless otherwise noted, sessions are held every other Tuesday from 12:45 to 2 p.m. in the Stassen Room (Room 170) of the Humphrey School during the fall and spring semesters. Locate recent workshop and seminar information from the Freeman Center.
