EnGenDER Newsletter: The Gender Climate Nexus
Aug 4, 2020
The EnGenDER project will support Climate Change, Disaster Risk Reduction and environmental management interventions in nine Caribbean countries by leveraging sector-level entry points (e.g. NAPs and NAMAs), specifically supporting implementation and/or upscaling of countries’ priority actions. This project will analyse and prioritise the needs of the most vulnerable with respect to climate change adaptation and mitigation in priority sectors, including increasing their resilience in key livelihood sectors. EnGenDER will also improve institutional capacities for delivering services effectively for the most vulnerable to accelerate post-disaster recovery and mitigate risk. By using a multi-disciplinary and integrated approach, the project also aims to contribute to the achievement of the SDGs.
This newsletter was compiled from the contributions of the EnGenDER Project’s donors and implementing partners. The submissions delved into the gender climate nexus and how EnGenDER interventions will support the achievement of gender-responsive disaster recovery and climate and environmental resilience in the Caribbean.
The articles explore the following topics:
• EnGenDER Dimensions
• Why Gender Matters
• Working in Caribbean Communities
• Future Action
