The first EU wide report on gender equality and climate change

The new EIGE Report is the first report on gender equality and climate change which covers all the European Union Member States and provides comparable data on the European Union level. The findings demonstrate that women’s involvement in climate change decision-making at national, European and international levels is still low. Therefore, EIGE introduces the first EU indicators in the area K: Women and the Environment of the Beijing Platform for Action to support the policy makers in enhancing equality and improving the climate change policies.



The first comprehensive database on gender training

EIGE is about to launch the first comprehensive EU wide database on gender training high-quality tools, resources and trainers at the end of 2012. It will work as a tool for improved policy implementation. The database constitutes EIGE’s wider framework of activities on gender mainstreaming and gender training, which include identifying, collecting and disseminating good practices.

This focus is a result of the extensive preparatory work. Representatives of the Gender Equality bodies of the Member States, researchers and experts participating in the international conference “Good Practices in Gender Mainstreaming: Towards Effective Gender Training”, organised by EIGE in Brussels on 28 November 2011, confirmed that gender training is one of the most crucial tools for increasing skills, effective implementation and monitoring of the progress on gender equality and mainstreaming policies. In order for gender mainstreaming to be implemented effectively, gender awareness, expertise and tools need to be in place. Training, therefore, has a central role in supporting decision makers to fulfil their mandates.


Find the best way to fight gender-based violence
with a new EIGE map

There is no comprehensive and comparable data collection on violence against women in the EU – according to The European Parliament resolution of 26 November 2009. EIGE offers its contribution to fill the gap. Its new project on mapping data sources on gender-based violence will result in a comprehensive and detailed map of the administrative sources, legislative and policy framework and statistical products on gender based violence in the EU and Croatia. The data will be available also in the form of an online database. It will enable policy makers to effectively design, implement and monitor policies to prevent and combat gender based violence.
