Climate Change presents the single biggest threat to sustainable development and is already causing widespread, unprecedented impacts that disproportionately burden the poorest, marginalized and most vulnerable. Its effects are being shaped by pervasive and entrenched gender inequalities and key vulnerable groups such as women, indigenous people, the elderly as well as persons living with disabilities are among the most likely to be disproportionally affected.
The UNDP in supporting countries in their efforts to advance the NDCs process and/or implementation developed the Climate Promise Programme. The aim of the Climate Promise Programme is to provide countries with the necessary support to drive NDC implementation, through the leveraging of existing funds within the UNDP’s existing climate portfolio, or by working in close collaboration with other UN system partners or by strategically augmenting other relevant ongoing activities, as appropriate under the UNDP Framework. The Enabling Gender-Responsive Disaster Recovery, Climate and Environmental Resilience in the Caribbean (EnGenDER) project, provides an excellent opportunity for support to be offered to specific beneficiary countries under the Climate Promise Programme, by leveraging the funding available under the EnGenDER project to advance activities which “systematically employ a gender-responsive approach within NDC processes, policies and programming.”
The overall objective of this assignment is three-fold:
- To conduct a series of Gender and NDC Training Clinics for the beneficiary countries of the EnGenDER project and the wider Caribbean region with a limited focus to include other small island developing states.
- To develop a Best Practice Tool Kit, which provides a practical implementation guide on the strategies, tools and techniques and specific interventions which should be utilized by Caribbean countries in integrating gender into their NDCs and climate change actions and
- To prepare a technical paper on gender-responsive climate change actions within SIDS
