Learning from the Canada-UNDP Climate Change Adaptation Facility

This publication provides an in-depth analysis and study of gender-responsive adaptation approaches being implemented in six countries under the Canada-UNDP Climate Change Adaptation Facility.  The study targets adaptation practitioners and decision-makers at all levels (from community to global) who are designing new adaptation initiatives and/or developing new climate change-related policies.  It provides a framework in which to examine concrete examples of gender-responsive approaches and how they can lead to greater adaptation impact.  It also makes the argument not only for the need for integrated approaches to gender and climate change but more importantly, to identify what inputs, resources and partnerships are needed to pursue them effectively.
