The proposed side-event, consistent with the Political Declaration of the SDG Summit 2019, will examine the links between a social and inclusive economy and the empowerment of women in the view of the 2030 Agenda and the fight against climate change. The discussions will also center on how corporate responsibility and gender equality measures can be better embedded in climate change mitigation and climate resiliency programs, to make for more effective and long lasting solutions. The partners of this event will be, among others, l’Oréal and the French High Commission for Social and Solidarity Economy and Social Innovation.
