Abstract: This chapter examines the development of gender inclusivity in the global climate governance regime under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) from recognition of the Gender Constituency in 2011 to date. It looks first at progress and pitfalls regarding quantitative changes in gender representation on regime bodies, and then briefly reflects on emerging qualitative developments on gender equality in regime activities. The discussion of gender equality is contextulaised in international law and politics more generally, and of the UNFCCC regime in particular looking at realtively slow and limited progress on gender equality and its implications.
