Call for women-led activities addressing Climate Change

The United Nations Climate Change secretariat is calling for women-led activities that address climate change to be selected and showcased under an initiative called Momentum for Change: Women for Results.

These “lighthouse activities” will demonstrate measurable impact on the ground, and the potential for replicability and scaleability at the local, national and international levels. Momentum for Change: Women for Results is implemented with the generous support of the Rockefeller Foundation. The deadline for submitting activities is April 26, 2013.

Criteria for selection of the activities (further information in the terms of application): 

  1. addressing climate change mitigation or adaptation, while advancing the active leadership and participation of women
  2. implemented, or in the course of implementation
  3. scalable and/or replicable
