Mainstreaming gender into climate change adaptation: data analysis, capacity building and learning platform

Partner Women's Environment and Development Organisation (WEDO)

Date of submission 02/04/2011


Action pledge 1

Current adaptation responses often lack appropriate data and tools for assessing impacts of gender-differentiated coping abilities in different sectors. To address this, WEDO's action pledge consists of two main activities. First is the collection of sex-disaggregated data and production of a comprehensive methodology to address gaps in gender-responsive action on adaptation.  Second is a capacity building program and learning platform to support policymakers and civil society in the design and implementation of gender-responsive adaptation policies and actions. These activities are pledged in order to realize effective and efficient adaptation actions for the most vulnerable groups of populations.
