Gender equality has a pivotal role in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. In UN Environment's Europe Office we are committed to strengthen capacity and raise awareness on gender and environment linkages in promoting sustainable interventions in the region.
I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I also commit to undertake the following:
Integrate the draft Gender Action Plan into the office work plan and our programmatic work for 2017.
Require all staff members to have a gender goal in their work plans, in order to acknowledge achievements.
Make available training courses and other knowledge products for staff to increase their awareness about gender issues and ensure compliance with UN Secretariat requirements.
Initiate the development of knowledge products to highlight the gender-environment nexus.
Extend the Panel Parity Pledge to the whole office.
