was wanting to know if anybody is working on climate change evaluation? Anything interesting to contribute on the topic of gender and CCA? Have been feeling very isolated until I found this site.

Thanks Karen, it is affirming to see I am not alone! I will certainly follow up on your advice. Best, Yvette

Hi Yvette, your observations are similar to mine in the context of limited empirical studies done on the CCA and mitigation nexus with gender development. However, things will change. If you look at the UNDP's Assessment of Development Results reports and some of the Joint Program Evaluations done in the past five years, gender is a focus area, along with other "cross-cutting" areas like environmental sustainability and capacity effectiveness etc. I encourage you to view some of those reports under the Environment and Climate Change thematic window, as part of your document review. It would be enlightening to eventually read your essay! Brgds, Karen

Thank you all for your responses! I am doing an evaluation of  gender and climate change adaptation project in Bangla Desh and Fiji and was somewhat taken aback to find no agreed upon methodology in the literature.  I am thinking perhaps it is because G CCA is so new that projects have not had time to be finished yet, that is why I was wondering who else is working on it. So far it seems to me as if the CCA M&E people are not really speaking gender and the gender people are still talking development which leaves me feeling rather lonely. Have you also noticed a similar divide in the literature or am I maybe just not reading the right people?

Anyway, I think it is great that we have hooked up - feel better to have a peer group. I fully agree that the right place to look is in areas like commons analysis and rights studies. At the moment I am working on agro ecology looking at case studies which, while not deliberately  gendered, seem to incorporate a lot of gender friendly approaches. My methodology essay should be up on the Gender CC website in about a week or so, and in the meantime I am happy to discuss anything which you think is important! Best, Yvette

Hi Yvette, 

I am currently engaged in monitoring and evaluation of how gender issues have been integrated into the Climate Change Agenda in the Indian Himalyas, and what strategies have been deployed, or what can be explored for this to happen. My previous work on Gender and commons, natural resource rights and sustainable development is also towards this goal of building strategies for a sustainable world with women a women centric approach 

Would be happy to link up and exchange notes!

Hi Yvette, one of the mandates that I am currently working on is CCA and mitigation for the CARICOM. Gender was not an explicit focus area although the results-based management tools created did integrate gendered indicators. I welcome the opportunity to conduct and learn more about evaluations that have a specific gender-CC nexus. Kind regards.
