The Art of Implementation Gender Strategies: Transforming National and Regional Climate Change Decision Making
This publication shares IUCN’s experiences in developing the world’s first gender-responsive national strategies and roadmaps on climate change. The work was lead by IUCN at the national level as part of a joint initiative with the GGCA, and with the financial support of the government of Finland for the ccGAPs and of DANIDA for the REDD+ roadmaps. The section that follows outlines the steps and elements of creating a ccGAP or REDD+ roadmap. The third section delves into some of the principles behind the strategies and what has worked best. The fourth section tells a story from each country, highlighting key sectors that demonstrate the gender dimensions of climate change in different national contexts. The final section concludes with some recommendations for how to continue the momentum.
