In order to push forward a gender perspective on the international climate change negotiations (COP 16) that take place in Cancun Mexico during November 29 and December 10, 2010, women's groups are organizing a series of activities including events around the world and advocacy work within the conference. 

Hardly any measures taken by the countries to tackle the crisis have highlighted promotion of women's employment and livelihoods. There is need for an enabling environment that integrates a comprehensive justice and human rights framework with social and gender justice at the forefront of internationally agreed development goals including the MDGs said Natalia Cardona from Social Watch and member of the Women's Working Group on Financing for Development.
