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.
