Dear Colleagues and Friends,

Greetings from the Center for Asia Pacific Women in Politics (CAPWIP) and the United Nations 
International Strategy for Disaster Risk Reduction (UN-ISDR)!
 
We are pleased to invite you to the Third Global Congress of Women in Politics and Governance which 
will be held on October 19-22, 2008 at the Dusit Hotel, Makati City, Metro Manila, Philippines.  
The theme of the congress is “Gender and Climate Change”.

Women and environment experts have raised concern over the absence of women in the discourse and 
debate on climate change, a global mainstream issue that is currently impacting the entire world. 
The involvement of women in areas of environmental management and governance should not be 
perceived as an afterthought. Women's roles are of considerable importance in the promotion of 
environmental ethics.
The current imperative is for women to understand the phenomenon of climate change and its impacts 
and implications at the individual, household, community and national levels. Studies show that 
women have a definite information deficit on climate politics and climate protection. Only with 
this information can women take their proper, significant and strategic role in the issue of 
climate change.
Invited to this congress are women parliamentarians, women in decision - making and governance, 
environment organizations, youth Leaders and Media Practitioners
The Congress will have the following objectives:
Overall Purpose: To provide a forum for women legislators, and women in decision making and 
environment organizations at all levels, in formulating gender-responsive legislation and policies.


Specific Objectives: 
a) To understand the phenomenon of climate change, its impacts and implications;
b). to review and examine the gender aspects of climate change and formulate appropriate actions to 
address such;
c). to define the roles women can play in addressing the issues of climate change at the global, 
national and sub-national levels; and 
d). to identify and define the action agenda for parliamentarians, policy advocates and women 
leaders to support global and national actions to adapt to and mitigate the impacts of climate 
change.
Congress Proceedings:
The discussion on gender and climate change will be organized around identifying the challenges to 
action as well as defining the appropriate responses to effectively address the impacts of climate 
change. Inputs to the discussion will be collected and organized around: 1) geographic location and 
2) types of actions: i.e. preparedness, risk reduction: building community resilience; adaptation; 
and mitigation. Cross cutting these discussions will be the identification of technologies in aid 
of responding to climate change. 
The focus of the discussions will revolve around defining and elaborating actions (i.e. 
preparedness, disaster risk reduction, adaptation, and mitigation) to cope with climate change and 
its impacts.
Preparedness and disaster risk reduction is about building individual and community capacities to 
position themselves and their communities so that the likelihood of climate change-induced 
disasters is reduced; the intensity or adverse impacts of disasters are cushioned and that 
inhabitants are able to respond promptly, expeditiously and effectively. Adaptation entails actions 
that moderate harm, or exploit benefits, of climate change.  Mitigation entails actions that 
minimizes or cushions the adverse impacts of climate change. 
In all of these actions, special attention will be given to defining how women and gender could be 
mainstreamed. In other words, the Congress should define how women can be given the social space to 
participate, influence, and benefit from global and local responses to climate change. 
The registration fee for the four day congress is one hundred eight thousand Philippine Pesos 
(P108, 000). per person for single room accommodations and Eighty eight thousand Philippine Pesos 
(P88, 000). per person for twin room sharing accommodations (two persons in one room). We are 
sending you the detailed information sheet (which contains the registration form) as an attachment 
to this email. 

The training will be held on Oct 19-22, 2008. However, the participants will be requested to be in 
Manila the day before, October 18, 2008 and leave Manila only on October 23, 2008. The overnight 
hotel accommodation on October 18, 2008 is already included in the fee. Participants will be 
billeted in the Dusit Hotel, the venue of the congress and hotels near the Dusit Hotel, accessible 
within walking distance. Room accommodations in the Dusit Hotel, the venue of the Congress will be 
on a first come - first served basis.

You can also download the full information sheet and registration form for this Third Global 
Congress of Women in Politics and Governance from our website, <http://www.capwip.org>

Importance of the Congress

Today, on the average, one person out of nineteen in a developing country will be hit by a climate 
disaster, compared to 1 out of 1,500 in an OECD country. Climate change creates life time traps: in 
Niger, a child born during a drought is 72 percent more likely to be stunted than a child born 
during a normal season.

We hope that your organization can send participants to the Third Global Congress of Women in 
Politics and Governance. The Theme of “Gender and Climate Change” is the first time this will be 
discussed in a forum whose objective is to formulate gender responsive legislation and policies for 
national governments and parliaments.

We truly hope that the environment organizations will find this forum a good opportunity to 
advocate gender and climate change policies and programs through gender responsive legislation to 
the women parliamentarians, decision makers, the youth leaders, media and the funding 
agencies/organizations. Let us join hands in promoting gender responsive governance through 
transformative leadership and citizenship. We are looking forward to your participation.


Very truly yours,
