Following a decision B.05/22, the Fund’s Secretariat prepared GCF/B.06/13 Options for a Fund-wide Gender-sensitive Approach. At its sixth meeting the Board, having considered document GCF/B.06/13:

  • Requested the Secretariat to integrate gender considerations into the preparation of draft policy documents and draft documents containing operational modalities, in line with the Governing Instrument, including those documents for consideration by the Board at its seventh meeting; and
  • Requested the Secretariat to prepare a draft gender policy and action plan for discussion at the seventh Board meeting, consistent with a country-driven approach, including through consultations with relevant bodies and observer organizations, for adoption at the eighth Board meeting.

The present document responds to the Board’s requests. The preparation of the report included:

  • A review of the comments made during the Board discussion of document GCF/B.06/13 and the relevant decisions recorded in GCF/B.06/18 and GCF/B.07/11;
