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

In the Liberia Climate Change Gender Action Plan (ccGAP) report, some of the many innovative ideas on how to mobilise women’s activities and engagement towards mitigation results include:

Training and empowering women environmental whistleblowers who act as coastal monitors.
Training women in plumbing, water plant treatment, community-based quality monitoring systems and service provision at county level.
Mainstreaming gender considerations into national REDD+ initiatives.
Developing initiatives to encourage women and men to use renewable green energy.
