The UNFCCC Adaptation Committee (AC) promotes the implementation of adaptation actions by providing technical support and guidance to Parties, as well as information and knowledge sharing. In its current work plan, it agreed to include the objective of incorporating gender as a cross-cutting consideration into all its activities.

In this regard, the AC, through its NAP taskforce, is calling for submitting views on how to mainstream gender considerations in the national adaptation planning process. Inputs should respond to the following questions:

  • What are good examples of lessons learned and best practices in prioritizing/incorporating gender in the process to formulate and implement national adaptation plans in your country or constituency?
  • How can gender best be incorporated into adaptation action?
  • In your experience, what are the remaining gaps related to incorporating gender considerations into adaptation planning and implementation?
  • What are useful sources relevant to this topic?

The inputs will feed into the AC upcoming deliverables, including a plan on how best to incorporate gender considerations into (1) adaptation action and (2) the AC work plan activities; and an event, in 2020, on identifying gaps and solutions related to incorporating gender considerations into adaptation planning and implementation.

The deadline for submissions is 15 July 2019. Please refer to the dedicated AC webpage for further information on the call and how to make a submission.
