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.

This Climate Change Gender Action Plan (ccGAP) for Liberia was prepared based on the desk review of key reports, publications and websites, surveys and interviews, in-country meetings, stakeholder consultation and research, among others. Each priority sector includes a plan of action with clear objectives, actions, indicators and responsible institutions as proposed and agreed to by participants during workshops with the Government of Liberia and stakeholders.
This National Strategy for Mainstreaming Gender in Climate Change in Egypt is the result of a collaboration between the IUCN Gender Office, the IUCN Regional Office for West Asia (ROWA), the Center for Environment and Development for the Arab Region and Europe (CEDARE), the Global Gender Office of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and other key national institutions in Egypt to develop a national policy framework on gender and climate change, and integrate these strategically into the Third National Communication.
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.
