Training manual on gender and climate change

Source(s):  Global Gender and Climate Alliance (GGCA)
International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN)
United Nations Development Programme - Headquarters (UNDP)

This manual has been designed as a practical tool to increase the capacity of policy and decision makers to develop gender-responsive climate change policies and strategies.

The training manual draws on existing in-house materials (research data, analyses and extracts from international frameworks) that have been adapted or expanded but also includes newly compiled case studies to illustrate the concepts in each module. It presents key conceptual and methodological advances on gender relations in the context of climate change. The topics covered in this manual relate to the topics covered in the Bali Action Plan.

The manual is modular: the trainer can choose topics and exercises according to the target group and the length of the training. The manual consists of the following modules:
Module 1: Gender and gender mainstreaming;
Module 2: International law instruments as a framework for mainstreaming gender in climate change;
Module 3: Overview of gender issues and climate change;
Module 4: Gender mainstreaming in adaptation efforts;
Module 5: Gender-sensitive strategies for mitigation actions;
Module 6: Gender-sensitive strategies on technology development and transfer to support actions on mitigation and adaptation;
Module 7: Gender mainstreaming in climate change financing mechanisms; and
Appendix: Annotated bibliography
