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.
The overall objective of Jordan’s climate change Gender Action Plan (ccGAP) is to ensure that national climate change efforts mainstream gender considerations so that women and men can have access to, participate in, contribute to and hence optimally benefit from climate change initiatives, programs, policies, and funds. Jordan was the first country globally to develop a gender and climate change strategy; this fact-sheet explains the priority areas of this plan.
This fact-sheet highlights the goals of Egypt’s climate change gender action plan which include mainstreaming gender considerations into national climate change initiatives and policies. Egypt’s priority areas are coastal management, agriculture, water, tourism, health, energy, transport, urbanization, and waste management.
