Filling buckets, fuelling change: Ensuring gender-responsive climate change adaptation


This research study draws on findings from six countries engaged in adaptation to climate change. They were supported by the Canada–UNDP Climate Change Adaptation Facility (CCAF). In all six countries—Cabo Verde, Cambodia, Haiti, Mali, Niger and Sudan—national projects aim to strengthen climate resilience, particularly in the areas of food security and water management. They also specifically demonstrate gender-responsive adaptation strategies, providing insights into the types of resources and partnerships needed at local and national levels for success. The study explores findings through six themes: gendered approaches to food security; water access and governance; time poverty and unpaid care work; control over resources and revenues; participation, decision-making and leadership; and the targeting of gender groups most at risk.
