Leveraging Co-Benefits Between Gender Equality and Climate Action for Sustainable Development

Developer or Source: UN Women

The ambition of this guidebook is to help practitioners and stakeholders integrate gender equality considerations in climate projects and leverage co-benefits between gender equality and climate action for sustainable development. It is divided into three parts: 1) an overview of co-benefits between gender equality and climate action; 2) an introduction to climate finance concepts, sources (such as the Green Climate Fund (GCF), the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and the Adaptation Fund (AF)) and instruments, and a discussion of their associated gender dimensions; and 3) a review of mainstreaming methodologies and tools to incorporate gender in climate change projects. Integration of gender into the project cycle includes project identification, gender analysis through data collection and stakeholder analysis, assessment and planning of gendered solutions, project implementation and monitoring and evaluation (M&E).
