Description

This toolkit aims to provide guidance to community practitioners in the region for the process of Gender inclusion, provide them with case studies from the region and practical tools, which can be used and draw from to integrate a gendered approach in implementing energy and community based adaptation projects/projects.

This Toolkit has been developed to assist those implementing Energy and Climate Change Community Based Adaptation Projects in the Pacific islands region to mainstream commitments for Gender Equality. The toolkit recognizes the different levels of understanding of Gender mainstreaming in the Pacific and adopts a step by step approach to the integration of Gender specific considerations at different stages of the Project cycle making the links between the Project and the different impact it may have on women, men, boys and girls. Note: This toolkit can be used with the “Pacific Gender & Climate ChangeToolkit” (SPC, 2013). The Toolkit recognizes the varied capacities of community workers in the Pacific and has been designed as a simple tool using practical learning techniques to communicate the key guidelines and principles around Gender and Energy and Gender and Climate Change Community Based Adaptation.
