Gender dynamics in a changing climate: how gender and adaptive capacity affect resilience

Source(s):  CARE International (CI)

This learning brief synthesises learning about gender dynamics and the role of community based adaptation (CBA) in increasing adaptive capacity and promoting gender equality. It identifies common themes between communities, reflects on the links between gender and adaptive capacity, and gives examples of how to integrate gender into CBA. It is based on the practical experience of designing, implementing, monitoring and evaluating CBA activities from CARE’s Adaptation Learning Programme for Africa (ALP). It draws on the experience and knowledge gathered from CARE’s Climate Vulnerability and Capacity Analyses (CVCAs), gender studies, learning events, and discussions with communities and programme staff.

This document is aimed to influence the development of programmes aimed at reducing climate vulnerability as well as government plans, policies and funding for CBA. It includes a discussion of knowledge gaps and recommendations for climate change adaptation programming, for national governments and for global policymakers.
