Interdependente Genderaspekte der Klimapolitik

Gendergerechtigkeit als Beitrag zu einer erfolgreichen Klimapolitik: Wirkungsanalyse, Interdependenzen mit anderen sozialen Kategorien, methodische Aspekte und Gestaltungsoptionen

Die Studie zeigt interdependente Geschlechteraspekte von Klimapolitik sowie Wirkweisen und Chancen zur Verbesserung von Geschlechtergerechtigkeit auf. In ihr leitet ein interdisziplinäres Forschungsteam Grundsätze zur Einbeziehung von Geschlechtergerechtigkeit in Klimaschutz und -anpassung ab, analysiert bestehende Programme auf ihre Genderrelevanz hin und gibt konkrete Politikempfehlungen z.B. zum Klimaschutzgesetz und Gender Aktionsplänen. Wichtige Erkenntnisse ergeben sich auch für Methoden, Daten und Forschungsbedarfe. Schließlich werden Empfehlungen zu Finanzierungs- und Förderaspekten sowie Wissensverbreitung und Kompetenzstärkung gegeben und ein an den Klimabereich angepasstes Instrument zur gleichstellungsorientierten Folgenabschätzung (Gender Impact Assessment) vorgestellt.

About (English version): 

The aim of the research project is to demonstrate the added value of the gender perspective for cli-mate protection and adaptation and, conversely, to demonstrate to what extent the appropriate design of climate policy measures can contribute to gender justice.

A comprehensive literature review provides an overview of the state of the art of research on gender relationships and climate change, highlights the relevance of the interaction between these two areas, identifies gaps in knowledge and identifies opportunities for a more effective and gender-equitable climate policy.

The increasing importance of gender perspectives for an effective climate policy was triggered by the decisions and mandates on gender equality and justice in the international climate negotiations. In order to implement these at the national level, the research project developed analytical categories to examine the structurally unequal power relations based on sex and gender as well as their causes and manifestations in various areas of society, the so-called gender dimensions.

Informed by analyses based on these gender dimensions, political impacts of measures on gender relations were identified and recommendations were generated. These gender dimensions were also used for the further development of Gender Impact Assessment (GIA) for climate policies. As the result of a test and commentary phase, a practice-oriented guidance was developed.

In the course of an impact, data and methods needs analysis, the gender dimensions were used for the analysis of three climate policy programmes and strategies (Climate Action Plan 2050, NKI's Local Measures Program and German Adaptation Strategy) in order to provide suggestions on how these could be more gender-oriented.

The results show opportunities for improving gender equality at many levels. Principles for integrat-ing gender equality into climate policy were derived, as were concrete policy recommendations on climate protection legislation and gender action plans. Important findings also arise for methods, data needs and data collection as well as research needs and regulations. Finally, recommendations are given on the financing and promotion as well as on the dissemination of knowledge and the strength-ening of competence.
