Acheiving gender equality in climate change and food systems

IISD, in partnership with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the International Training Centre of the International Labour Organization (ITCILO), OXFAM, and Women in Law and Development in Africa, is organizing an online training course on Achieving Gender Equality In Climate Change and Food Systems, which is planned to take place online from April 20 to May 6, 2022.

Format and Methodology

This online training aims to deepen the knowledge of parliamentarians and policy-makers on key gender equality issues in agriculture and food systems. It will assist them with the design and implementation of gender-responsive interventions and policies that advance gender equality in relation to climate change and food security. The course has three modules: 

  • Module 1: Addressing gender equality in climate change adaptation and mitigation in agriculture.
  • Module 2: Building equitable and inclusive food systems.
  • Module 3: Supporting gender-responsive budgeting and planning for agricultural and climate change policies.

Each module will be introduced by a live webinar with topic experts, followed by interactive sessions on each of the modules. Participants will have access to the platform and will be enrolled in the course on the ITCILO e-campus to join live webinars and take the online classes.


The course material will be available in English and French. Live webinars and interactive sessions will be presented with live interpretation in both languages.


Each module takes approximately 45–60 minutes to complete, supported by 2 hours of live webinars weekly.
