CARE International has several useful resources on integrating gender in adaptation. These resources recognize that the relations between men, women, and youth affect people’s capacity to adapt to the impacts of climate change. Check it out!
- Communique on Gender and community based adaptation (CBA)
- Joto Afrika issue 9 on CBA and Gender
- CCAFS / CARE Gender and Inclusion Tool Box
- CARE is also preparing a guide for climate vulnerability and capacity assessment with a gender lens, which builds on the CVCA handbook
CARE has just released Guidance for Gender Based Violence (GBV) Monitoring and Mitigation within Non-GBV Focused Sectoral Programming. This document aims to address the increasing demand for clear guidance on how to practically and ethically monitor and mitigate gender-based violence (GBV) within non-emergency, international development programming, in which GBV is not a specific programmatic component. Specifically, it draws on existing GBV-related guidance, as well as input from a group of experts, to provide recommendations for preventing and/or responding to unintentional risk, threat, or violence against individuals related to programmatic interventions. These recommendations describe ways to take stock of the programmatic environment with regard to GBV in general, as well as targeted suggestions on how to track GBV related incidents and issues throughout the program cycle.
After much anticipation, the Gender and Inclusion Toolbox: Participatory Research in Climate Change and Agriculture, presenting gender-sensitive and socially inclusive participatory action research methods, was finally launched yesterday in Nairobi via a well-attended live-streamed event!
The launch coincided with the International Day of Rural Women to emphasize the need for more relevant, gender-responsive methods and tools for the development and research community.
The Gender and Inclusion Toolbox: Participatory Research in Climate Change and Agriculture (PDF) is the result of a long-term partnership between the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS), World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF), and CARE International.
