Why Are People Raving About the CIF Gender Action Plan?

Mafalda Duarte 

The Climate Investment Funds (CIF) is committed to robust gender mainstreaming to enhance gender-responsive outcomes across CIF programs, Investment Plans and projects. The CIF Gender Action Plan Phase 2, approved in December 2016, seeks to mainstream gender in CIF policy and programming in support of gender equality in climate-resilient, low carbon development investment in CIF countries. 

The CIF Gender approach seeks to ensure that specific attention is paid within CIF governance and operations to: gender expertise in Investment Plan and project missions; sector-specific gender analysis tied to national strategic contexts; improved beneficiary identification and targeting; inclusion of women and women’s organizations in CIF-related consultations; and gender-responsive monitoring and evaluation.
