The Art of Implementation: Gender Strategies Transforming National and Regional Climate Change Decision Making

Abstract: This publication shares IUCN’s experiences in developing the world’s first gender-responsive national strategies and roadmaps on climate change. Different sections outline steps and elements of creating a climate change gender action plan (ccGAP) or REDD+ roadmap; present principles behind the strategies and what has worked best; detailed case studies highlighting sectors that demonstrate the gender dimensions of climate change in different national contexts; and provide recommendations on how to move forward.

Programme for Mainstreaming Gender in Climate Change Efforts in Jordan

The Kingdom of Jordan is an upper middle income and developing country. Highly urbanized, over 70 percent of Jordan’s population live in towns and cities, making the local population highly dependent on energy. Jordan furthermore also ranks amongst the ten most water-poor countries in the world, with dire consequences to agriculture, food security and sustainable livelihoods. Being both highly urbanized and extremely water scarce, the Kingdom also faces an additional challenge – waste reduction and management.
