Women : Lost Component in Climate Change (Turkey)


Titre : Women : Lost Component in Climate Change (Turkey)

Pays : Turquie

Numéro projet : TUR/SGP/OP6/Y2/CORE/BD/16/08

Domaine :

Durée : 11/2016 — 10/2017

Bénéficiaire : Global Balance Society

For the sound implementation of UN Paris Climate Agreement to which Turkey is a signatory (April 2016), it is necessary to make explicit the role of the civil society organizations in the fight against climate change, and to strengthen their positions by enabling them to affect the policies positively with different methods and quests.
The target group under the project comprises woman citizens. This study will focus directly on the woman civil society organizations which are the organized representatives of women in the society. Perception and awareness of woman civil society organizations will be raised in order for them to adopt a common attitude at the points of intersection of the rights and duty areas in the fight for gender inequality and climate change, thus strengthening their communications both among themselves internally, and with the other stakeholders of thr society, and paving the way for their playing an effective role at national and local levels in climate governance in Turkey.
The main goal here is to incorporate gender mainstreaming into Turkey’s basic policies, plans and programs concerning climate change. In this context, another goal of the project, which is as important and weighty as its environmental dimension, is to question the policies for combating climate change (mitigation, adaptation and loss & damage) from the standpoint of human rights and climate justice at the point of improvement of the socio-economic statuses of women in Turkey. The Project activities have been designed with this point of view.
