Literature review – Gender equality and CCD
This document reviews literature to provide a background for the CDKN research project Gender equality and Climate Compatible Development- Drivers and challenges to people’s empowerment. It analyses how and where gender mainstreaming is carried out in climate change adaptation, mitigation and development projects in order to inform and guide subsequent research on the topic.
The project’s aim is to strengthen the evidence base of gender-sensitive approaches to climate compatible development (CCD). The project will explore to what extent gender-sensitive approaches contribute to greater gender equality and more effective CCD. It will therefore help to create more nuanced gender analysis of CCD projects, provide compelling evidence of the benefits of gender-sensitive approaches to CCD and translate usable insights for policy and practice while supporting people’s empowerment.
