Objective and Activities

GenderCC works with a consortium of experienced organizations in India, Indonesia, South Africa and México to integrate social and gender issues into urban climate policy. Activities include capacity building for national organizations; training of ‘gender and climate change promoters’ in the pilot cities; development and application of a method to assess and monitor cities’ policies for gender sensitivity, inclusiveness, social and environmental impacts; identify key actions for urban low-carbon and sustainable development; prepare outreach and advocacy strategies addressing local governments; implement pilot actions and campaigns, and develop training materials and an e-learning course. Partners are involved in an intensive joint working and learning process including evaluation and dissemination. In 12 pilot cities, local capacities are built to increase women’s participation and introduce concrete recommendations for gender responsive strategies into urban policy.
