Author : United Nations (UN) | 2015
Published By: United Nations

The goal of the project was to ensure that women in communities vulnerable to the impact of climate change access sustainable livelihoods and are agents of change in climate change risk mitigation policy. To understand the results/contributions and lessons learned in the areas of gender equality and climate change the evaluation was planned which is also expected to feed learning into UN Women’s efforts to promote gender equality in Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation in the post-2015 development scenario in Bangladesh. The project had significant impacts over policy and stakeholder’s decision making. UN Women and the Bangladesh Climate Change Trust (BCCT) initiated a series of training workshops on Mainstreaming Gender Equality in Climate Change for government officials. With improved knowledge of and capacity in gender mainstreaming from the perspective of rights in climate change efforts, relevant actors are sensitized to contributing towards gender equality within their sphere of influence.
