Building on the fact that effective adaptation and resilience development cannot be achieved without meaningful inclusion of gender, and due to the growing necessity for stakeholders to understand how to mainstream gender into climate action, a new training programme on Mainstreaming Gender Considerations in Climate Change Adaptation Projects was held this week by RRC.AP and partners.
The programme's aim was to build capacities of GCF National Designated Authorities (NDAs), Focal Points, GCF Accredited Entities and applicant entities to effectively and holistically mainstream gender considerations in climate change adaptation projects by providing them with tools, methodologies and guidance; and to leverage co-benefits between gender equality and adaptation action for sustainable development. To do so, the programme focused on gender policies and requirements of the Green Climate Fund (GCF).
21 participants from Asia and the Pacific participated in the programme.
The event was jointly organised by RRC.AP, Women Organizing for Change in Agriculture and Natural Resource Management (WOCAN), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), UN Environment, Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO), United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the Ministry of the Environment of Japan.
