Gender Review of Climate Change Legislative and Policy Frameworks and Strategies in East Africa

The focus of this paper is to establish whether these frameworks are in accordance with international and regional frameworks on climate change in addressing gender-specific impacts of climate change in the areas of climate-smart agriculture, food security, water, health, human rights and security. This paper, therefore, reviews climate change related policies and strategies in East Africa through a gendered lens.

Incorporating Gender into Low-emission Development: A Case Study from Vietnam

Reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from agriculture is needed to meet global climate policy targets. A number of low-emission development (LED) options exist in agriculture, which globally emits 10–12% of GHG emissions. In paddy rice production, alternative wetting and drying (AWD) can reduce emissions by up to 48%. Co-benefits of AWD include lower water consumption, lower use of fertilizer and seeds, and higher resistance to some pests and diseases.

A Large Step Towards Gender-Just Climate Policies, but Too Little Overall Progress: GenderCC´s & LIFE´s joint statement on the outcomes of COP23

Sex, Rights, Gender in the Age of Climate Change

Sexual and reproductive rights are often missed out of the development equation.4 Reports from the grassroots level tell us that communities affected by climate change perpetuate existing gender norms, and highlight the occurrence of early/child marriage and gender-based violence. This shows that interventions on climate change, including climate extreme events, need to recognise and integrate sexual and reproductive rights.

Gender Issues in Biogas Promotion and Use in Kenya: A preliminary review

This review has been undertaken in the context of preparation of a concept note for the Kenya dairy NAMA. Biogas promotion is one of the project components. Mitigation actions should aim to achieve greater, more effective, sustainable, and equitable climate change results, outcomes and impacts; ensure that women and men have equal opportunity to contribute to,

Status of Gender, Vulnerabilities and Adaptation to Climate Change in the Hindu Kush Himalaya

The paper looks at a range of materials in order to develop a better understanding of how communities in general and women more particularly impacted, are coping with and adapting to their changing circumstances; the lessons that community-based adaptations from the wider South Asian region offer for helping to mitigate adverse conditions; the state of climate adaptation policies, national and local action plans (NAPAs and LAPAs) of countries of the HKH; and, finally, identifies research gaps

Mainstreaming Gender in Green Climate Fund Projects

This manual addresses the GCF’s potential to mainstream gender into climate finance, building on its mandate to support a paradigm shift to low-emission and climate-resilient development. The manual is intended for use by climate change project proponents from governments, international and national direct access entities, and civil society organizations. It reviews the GCF Gender Policy and related programming provisions, including readiness support.
