Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls

Women and girls, everywhere, must have equal rights and opportunity, and be able to live free of violence and discrimination. As a project “Gender-responsive Coastal Adaptation (GCA) project” has taken a gender responsive and transformative approach to climate change vulnerability, considering gendered differences in access to resources, ability to pursue adaptive livelihoods and institutional support and capacity building, and this has fundamentally shaped all of the activities and outputs of the project. The intervention aims to go beyond the categorization of women as a “vulnerable” group, or simply as beneficiaries of the project, but rather recognizes women’s essential contributions as leaders and agents of change in the face of a changing climate and resource constraints.
