Gender and Climate Finance
This training module provides basic information and learning tools needed to understand, advocate and influence the gender aspects of climate finance within the Asia-Pacific region. It focuses on different climate finance funds, mechanisms and sources as they pertain to gender. Major themes covered include the economic and human cost of climate change, gender aspects of climate finance, and strategies for guiding climate funds and mechanisms towards increased sensitivity to gender-based vulnerabilities and the gendered aspects of climate change responses. The module also presents case studies and other learning tools (e.g. handouts and group activities) to help facilitate the use of the module and think through issues to consider when designing and implementing gender-responsive climate finance mechanisms.
