The Independent Redress Mechanism (IRM) of the Green Climate Fund (GCF) has developed a draft gender strategy note, which outlines the IRM’s commitments to a more gender-responsive approach in all its processes and operations. It documents the background for producing the strategy note and specific strategies to make the IRM more accessible to all genders in terms of its five functions.

As part of the IRM’s ongoing efforts to consult with stakeholders on its processes and procedures, the IRM would like to invite the public to contribute to the IRM’s journey to becoming more gender-responsive and inclusive. Any individual or organization may submit comments.
