UNDP Develops Gender and Climate Change Knowledge Products for Asia-Pacific and Africa

17 January 2014. The lack of international, regional and national gender-specific expertise on climate change and sustainable development issues poses one of the most pressing challenges to addressing the gender dimensions of climate change in developing countries. To respond to this challenge, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), in partnership with the Global Gender and Climate Alliance (GGCA), has developed two series of regional gender and climate change knowledge products directed to practitioners and policy-makers, working respectively in the Asia-Pacific region and Africa. 

These knowledge products consist of the following materials:

Series on Gender and Climate Change in Asia and the Pacific

This series includes 5 regional thematic policy briefs and training modules on the following topics, focusing on the Asia-Pacific experience:

Series on Gender and Climate Change in Africa

This series includes 5 regional thematic policy briefs and training modules on the following topics, focusing on the African experience:

The policy briefs and training modules aim to promote capacity building. The modules set specific learning objectives and include quizzes, exercises, case studies and learning tools, such as suggestions for group discussions and activities. These materials draw on the capacity development work being undertaken in partnership with other members of GGCA and complement existing GGCA training modules, resource guides, and related knowledge products.
