The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) has initiated a campaign on the collection of good practice in promoting gender equality and the empowerment of women, with a specific focus on: (1) how to mainstream gender in organizational policies and practices, (2) how to attract more girls and women into Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and the meteorological/hydrological profession, and (3) how to make weather, climate, hydrological and other environmental services more gender-sensitive.
The purpose is to capture, document and disseminate good practice from which WMO Members can learn, adapt to their context, and potentially replicate. The initiative is in line with the WMO Gender Action Plan and the priority actions identified by the EC Advisory Panel of Experts on Gender Mainstreaming (Decision 77 (EC-68)).
WMO Members are welcome to contribute with information on existing good practice by using the template below.
Deadline for submission: 15 September 2017
