The Secretariats of the three Rio Conventions – the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), and the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) – are working together to identify and develop opportunities for joint capacity building on gender issues for Parties and stakeholders under each of the Conventions.  This includes an initiative that is being carried out in collaboration with the Global Environment Facility and the United Nations Institute for Training and Research, to develop an online training course on gender and environmental issues, with modules on the thematic issues addressed by each Convention (climate change, biodiversity and land degradation). These training materials will help to promote consistent attention to gender issues across each of the Rio Conventions.  

Your input is requested to help ensure that the training and capacity-building activities address your needs related to integrating gender issues in implementing the Rio Conventions.  As such, this questionnaire targets  Convention country focal points and other staff of government offices responsible for national engagement in and implementation of each of the Conventions.  It is also aimed at international organizations, civil society organizations and other stakeholders engaged in working to achieve the objectives of the different Conventions, at international, regional, national and local scales.  

The survey takes approximately 10 minutes, and you will have until 15 December 2017 to submit it.  Responses are anonymous and individual, and will only be used in an aggregated way.  You can go back to any of your answers until you press the “submit” button.

The results of the survey will inform collaborative planning and development of training and capacity-building activities.

Thank you for your contribution!
