Advancing Gender-Responsive Climate Action Through National Adaptation Plan (NAP) Processes
The National Adaptation Plan (NAP) process provides an unprecedented opportunity to reduce vulnerability to climate change, while also redressing social and gender inequalities. To realize this potential, a gender-responsive approach to the NAP process is needed.
Our first synthesis report, Towards Gender-Responsive NAP Processes: Progress and Recommendations for the Way Forward, highlighted the challenges and opportunities that countries face in taking a gender-responsive approach to their NAP processes and made recommendations for taking this forward. This second synthesis report provides an overview of the areas that have made significant progress in the last two years, as well as the additional efforts that will be required in the coming years.
This report aims to help countries engaged in NAP processes use a gender-responsive approach, regardless of where they are in the process. This may also be of interest to development partners who are providing capacity development and technical support to adaptation actors involved in NAP processes.
