Examples of innovative women’s mitigation activities in IUCN ccGAPs: Jordan

The Jordan Climate Change Gender Action Plan (ccGAP) report inspired the government to declare gender equality as a national priority in the country’s response to climate change and created a permanent seat for women’s groups at its national climate change decision-making body.

Some of the many innovative ideas on how to mobilise women’s activities and engagement towards mitigation results in the ccGAP include:

Encourage families to increase energy efficiency through the enforcement of construction codes and reducing carbon footprints by supporting women’s campaigns reducing household emissions;
Promote women’s participation in small-scale enterprises and food processing transformation industries; and
Conduct “training of trainers” sessions for community centre representatives, school teachers and Imams and priests.
