Gender, Climate Change and Community-Based Approach
Gender mainstreaming is a perennial, cross-cutting concern within the UN system, and this Guidebook offers advice on how to design gender-sensitive, community-based projects and programmes. The Guidebook presents a wealth of experiences and examples taken from the UNDP-GEF Community-Based Adaptation Programme that are being piloted throughout the world. Likewise, the Guidebook presents beneficial lessons drawn from the GEF Small Grants Programme’s many years of ongoing work in over 122 countries. The Guidebook will be particularly useful for CBOs, NGOs, governments, development agencies and other community-based practitioners who might wish to review successful cases of gender mainstreaming in community-based adaptation projects.
