CBA and Gender Analysis Practitioner Brief

 

Please download the: Understanding Gender in Community-based adaptation

 

 

Gender inequality continues to be one of the most persistent and widespread forms of social inequality across the world. And yet, while its importance is increasingly recognised by policy makers and practitioners working to address climate change, its impact on adapting to climate change is often poorly understood, or simply misunderstood.

 

Good analysis of local gender dynamics to inform community-based adaptation does not have to be a complicated science. This practical brief is not a guide for researchers, nor is it a comprehensive gender analysis tool. Rather, it seeks to unpack why, where and how gender analysis fits into the community-based adaptation process, providing a rational for its importance and pointing to key resources. It seeks to demystify the challenge by breaking the process of “integrating gender” into a set of three key practices, which inform CBA planning and decision making through different ways. The brief describes a process and steps for gender analysis that apply to whichever practices are most useful to a project or programme. It seeks to motivate readers to make better efforts to understand and respond to gender dynamics, as an essential element of local climate change adaptation planning.

 

The brief is the third in a series of practitioner briefs which document ALP learning on community based adaptation approaches in ways that are useful to practitioners, development actors and decision-makers. This brief will be of particular value for project or programme teams, local and national government staff and civil society practitioners who are designing or starting up programmes which aim for adaptation and resilience to climate change and sustainable outcomes by climate vulnerable men and women in Africa. The brief is useful across a wide range of programmes and sectors where gender equality is a critical outcome, for example in – adaptation, community economic development, development planning, sector based development, climate smart agriculture, women’s empowerment, disaster risk reduction and social protection.
