At the May 2018 Adaptation Community Meeting, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Global Gender Office presented on its experience developing and implementing innovative, participatory methodologies to promote gender-responsive adaptation and resilience across sectors.
Shared Resources, Joint Solutions (SRJS) is an expansive programme that spans 16 countries and focuses on increasing food and water security and climate resilience. Gender equality and inclusivity principles are key, cross-cutting goals of the SRJS programme.
A methodology developed by the IUCN to help develop and implement a gender-responsive analysis for a wide range of partner institutions. Key questions are provided to uncover gender gaps and issues at local, insitutional and national levels, as well as gendered differences in the distribution of benefits, risks and opportunities.
This publication aims to provide trainers, practitioners, and policy makers of environment and gender mainstreaming agencies an understanding of key concepts and approaches to gender-responsive mitigation measures, strategies, and policies. It covers key concepts on gender and climate change and concludes with step-by-step guidelines for policy and decision makers to mainstream gender into climate policies […]
There is growing recognition that by empowering women to actively participate in reducing emissions and strengthening community resilience, climate change projects become more successful, more sustainable, and more equitable. This publication aims to provide trainers, practitioners, and policy makers of environment and gender mainstreaming agencies an understanding of key concepts and approaches to gender-responsive mitigation […]
This brief synthesizes research findings, analysis and policy recommendations on creating an alternative gender-responsive macroeconomic agenda. Macroeconomic policy, including fiscal and monetary policy, is often thought of as gender-neutral. But economic policy choices affect women and men differently because of their different positions in the economy, both market (paid) and non-market (unpaid). For instance, budget […]
Climate change impacts and responses are not gender-neutral; thus, climate financing mechanisms and resource allocations meant to address these differentiated impacts must be gender-responsive. Women’s direct participation in climate change decision making, including in governing bodies of climate finance mechanisms, is a crucial aspect to effectively and equitably designing, implementing, and funding climate solutions. A gender-responsive climate finance architecture can play […]
The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), in partnership with the Ugandan Ministry of Water and Environment, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), as well as local governments and civil society organizations, have been working to address many of the climate-related issues in the Sanzara community by employing Forest Landscape Restoration (FLR) with an integrated Ecosystem-Based Adaptation (EBA) approach to maximize community climate resilience. […]
The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Cancun Agreements in 2010 and Durban Outcomes in 2011 called for REDD+ national strategies and systems for providing information on how safeguards are being addressed and respected to integrate ‘gender considerations’. In 2011, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), with support from the Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA), and […]
At the time of the Global Gender and Climate Alliance (GGCA) inception, there was no organized movement to address gendered impacts of climate change at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Through ongoing commitment, time, and energy on the part of the four founding members, an expanded GGCA steering committee, Secretariat, and […]
