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.|
