Gender Mainstreaming  

CLIMATE CHANGE IS NOT GENDER NEUTRAL

Neither is CIF. Climate-smart, meaningful and durable development demands careful attention to the different vulnerabilities and risks women and men face from climate change, as well as the role women can play as change agents and decision makers in mitigation and resilience-building activities.

The CIF Gender Action Plan, now in its second phase, is committed to mainstreaming gender in CIF policy and programming, in support of gender equality in climate-resilient, low-carbon development investment across the CIF portfolio. 

It's exciting to see the Climate Investment Funds innovating and going beyond gender mainstreaming to a gender transformation approach.
