Green Talks LIVE The gender environment nexus March 2023

Gender equality and environmental sustainability are gaining political momentum as global challenges that require urgent coordinated action. Women and men around the world are affected in a differentiated way by climate change, deforestation, land degradation, desertification, unsustainable infrastructure, growing water scarcity and inadequate sanitation, making the goals of gender equality and environmental sustainability mutually reinforcing. They may also experience differentiated health impacts from air pollution and chemicals. Yet, very few countries integrate a gender lens to their environmental data collection and policy making.

The event will be opened by Jo Tyndall, OECD Environment Director, followed by a presentation by Dimitra Xynou, Policy Analyst at the OECD Environment Directorate. We will be joined by country representatives to share experiences, including Ana Puy from the Spanish Ministry for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge, amongst others.

The presentation and discussion will be followed by a live Q&A session with attendees.

Join us on 30 March 2023 from 15:00-16:00 CET for a presentation and discussion with experts on the gender-environment nexus, and the importance of integrating a gender lens in environmental and climate policies.

Market actors and jurisdictions have ramped up efforts around transition finance, such as developing taxonomies and guidelines. But transition finance is often criticised for opening the door to greenwashing and risking emission-intensive lock-in. How can we ensure the development of robust corporate transition plans to support credible and meaningful transition investments towards net zero? And how can emission-intensive lock-in and greenwashing be avoided?

On 16 February 2023 we discussed transition finance and transition planning, their importance for moving to net-zero pathways in hard-to-abate sectors and emerging markets and developing economies, as well as outstanding challenges in this space. The presentation drew from the recent report OECD Guidance on Transition Finance: Ensuring Credibility of Corporate Climate Transition Plans, which proposes 10 key elements to help corporates in developing transition plans, financiers to identify credible investment opportunities, and policymakers to develop strong policy frameworks.

Speakers included: Jo Tyndall, Director, OECD Environment Directorate; Mathilde Mesnard, Deputy Director, OECD Environment Directorate; Elia Trippel and Valentina Bellesi, Green Finance and Investment Team, OECD Environment Directorate; Charlotte Gardes-Landolfini, Climate Change, Energy and Financial Stability Expert, IMF; and Eugene Wong, CEO, Sustainable Finance Institute Asia (SFIA).
