Webinar | Gender-Responsive National Adaptation Plan (NAP) Processes
How can countries make their NAP processes more gender-responsive?
Gender-responsive approaches go beyond sensitivity to the differences between women and men—they actively seek to promote gender equality. Applying this to the NAP process requires attention to gender throughout the iterative cycle of planning, implementation, and monitoring and evaluation. It also means consideration of gender issues in the crosscutting dimensions, including institutional arrangements, capacity development and information sharing related to the NAP process.
