  • Guidelines for policy makers and proposal developers provide pragmatic advice in designing gender-responsive climate policies and funding proposals.
  • Actively engaging women in climate mitigation activities can yield multiple benefits, including improved jobs, better livelihoods, and more equitable revenue flows. Efforts are moving forward to design climate funding mechanisms to help capture these benefits, but policy makers and other stakeholders need more guidance on designing gender-responsive climate policies and funding proposals. The guidelines in this publication fill this void. It is hoped that these guidelines would equip policy makers with pragmatic advice on how to mainstream gender into climate change mitigation actions and funding proposals. This publication reflects on applications for the guidelines as well as relationships between climate planning and funding proposal.

About the publication

The guidelines in this publication draw heavily on experiences from the ADB regional technical assistance project, Harnessing Climate Change Mitigation Initiatives to Benefit Women. Funded by the Nordic Development Fund, this ADB project aims to assist policy makers in Cambodia, the Lao People’s Democratic Republic, and Viet Nam with integrating gender into national and/or subnational climate strategies, climate action plans, and climate finance screening processes.
