Request for resources on INTERSECTIONALITY + GENDER MAINSTREAMING in Climate Change Projects


The Adaptation Fund is currently conducting a study on ‘intersectional approaches to integrating gender considerations in climate change adaptation projects.’

In organizing the desk review, we are interested in gathering relevant project documents, reports and/or statistics that have applied the concept of intersectionality in the context of gender mainstreaming in adaptation projects. If you have potential resources that meet this criteria, we would highly appreciate if you can share the relevant materials with the lead consultant, Dr. Katie Tavenner - by June 4, 2021.

Thanks so much in advance!

Thank you so much, Rituu for sharing the links to these great blog posts!

Hi Katie and All

You may be interested in this article tho' not to do the climate change adaptation but rather how an indigenous group of women in Bangladesh took over a women's organisation and used it to channel CIMMYT/CSISA wheat and maize innovations to themselves and also Muslim women working in the fields. Has quite a focus on intersectionalities.

Thank you, Cathy! This looks like a fabulous and relevant article, thank you for sharing.

Will share over mail

Hi Katie, 

There is the ISE4GEMs guide that was developed which incorporates an intersectional approach involving gender, environments and marginalized voices within a systemic framework. It would be relevant for assessing climate adaptation projects. You can find the guide here, available in English and Spanish.

In addition, I am currently just started an evaluation of UN Women's work on climate mitigation and adaptation and so I would be interested in the results of your desk review and also share some reflections after the evaluation is finalized.

Thank you so much, Shravanti, for sharing this guide, it looks like a wonderful resource.

Best of luck with your evaluation on UN Women's work on climate mitigation and adaptation - it would be great to connect after our studies are finalized to reflect and share best practices - hopefully by that point we will have enough information collected to share something back with the G & E community, as I believe applied intersectionality is a concept many organizations are interested in learning about.

Yes, let's do so. I'm sharing an evaluation in which I used the approach if that is helpful and Anne and Ellen have other work they are hopefully sharing.

Great, thank you again, Shravanti!

Hi Katie, is there a methodology you're following in terms of the data materials needed? Any countries preferred? I can share a few via email.
