Integrating gender considerations into community-based adaptation in agrarian communities in the Lower Mekong Basin

Source(s):  United States Agency for International Development (USAID)

This report highlight insights, opportunities and challenges that may help policymakers and practitioners carry out more inclusive, gender-responsive adaptation planning for rural communities. It also contributes toward expanding the understanding of gender and community-based adaptation (CBA) based on the project's on-the-ground experience in adaptation planning and implementation in the Lower Mekong Basin.

The publication provides recommendations on how to integrate gender considerations into CBA (p. 25-31):

  • practitioners:
    • commit time and resources to realising gender-responsive CBA;
    • forge connections to support networking within or between villages.
  • donors:
    • encourage early attention to gender dimensions;
    • create opportunities for expanding capacity and knowledge regarding gender.
  • governments:
    • expand opportunities for women’s participation at all levels of the government;
    • support policies and processes that engage women as equal partners in decision-making.
  • academia:
    • continue building the evidence base on the social and gender dimensions of climate change;
    • expand research on urban areas, special groups and on impacts of policies on gender roles.
