Yunnan Green Development Foundation (YGF) (Kunming)
Gender, urbanity and community development
Topics related to the Gender Into Urban Climate Change Initiative (GUCCI) are the ones GenderCC would like to focus on for the exchange programme, given the project’s multi-level (city, country and global level), crosscutting (gender and climate change) and the original GAMMA methodology (please see below about the project description). The exchange is thus a unique opportunity to collaborate with YGF and design further approaches based on our mutual fields of expertise, including climate and environmental protection, low-carbon urban development and community sustainable development.
