Invitation to Tender: Feminist Communities for Climate Justice

Published: Tuesday, July 18, 2023

‘Feminist Communities for Climate Justice’, a joint project between the National Women’s Council and Community Work Ireland, are inviting tender proposals for Baseline Research which will build on the review of literature and policy already undertaken by the Project Team by:

  • examining Irish climate and environment policy from the perspective of women and marginalised communities, detailing how climate change impacts differently on women and marginalised communities and;
  • highlighting where these impacts have been a consideration and identifying where they have not
  • identifying key areas and strategies for improving the proofing of policy from this perspective
  • referencing relevant case studies, internationally and or nationally where this analysis does exist or where policy is reflective, as applicable

The analysis of the gaps will help better understand the aspects of climate justice that need additional attention to support the needs of women and marginalised communities in Ireland.

The Tender Proposals should be emailed to Collette collettemce@nwci.ie, marked ‘Feminist Communities for Climate Justice – Baseline Research’, by midnight on Friday 8th September 2023.


About the project

Feminist Communities for Climate Justice campaigns for climate justice that reflects feminist and community work values. We mobilise communities, ensuring social inclusion and equality are central to climate policies and programmes. This partnership between NWC and CWI amplifies the voices of women and marginalised communities that are most impacted by climate change, building momentum in communities to engage, understand and influence climate policies. Feminist Communities for Climate Justice will develop a feminist and community work analysis, deliver an accredited training programme, establish a Communities for Climate Justice National Network, and develop resources and campaigns.
