Of all the 'fragile' actors affected by climate change, women are the most affected, due to discrimination and social conventions. An inclusive climate strategy should consider the different needs and contributions between genders, not only to be effective in combating climate change but also to help reduce social inequalities by promoting women's rights. A meeting in Bonn that brought together representatives of the three Conventions adopted at the 1992 UN Conference on Environment and Development (or Earth Summit) reminded us of the long and difficult road to acceptance of this awareness.
One of the central themes of this year's Interim Negotiations sessions, which have just opened in Bonn, is Global Stocktake (GST). On the first day, so besides the opening plenary, most of the events focused on it. The GST is the review mechanism under Art. 14 of the Paris Agreement that aims to assess every five years the progress made and how much more there is to be done to achieve the ultimate goals of the agreement.
