The proposed Regional Tecbincal Assistance (RETA) supports human resource and technical capacity development for implementing agencies to integrate gender analysis in climate change policy frameworks and screening of emission reduction projects. It also seeks to help women's groups to gain co-benefits from appropriate emissions reductions technologies; and for national and sub-national women's ministries to engage in and promote more equitable benefit distribution of climate change finance in dialogue with government agencies managing national climate change responses.
The project's outputs reflect efforts to improve gender equality in the project:
Gender concerns mainstreamed in national or sub-national climate change strategies, action plans, and mitigation plans
Effective mechanism supporting stakeholder engagement process and gender equitable benefit distribution identified for replication
National Women's Group in three pilot areas have successfully developed local tools and mechanisms in order to access climate financing.
