Celebrating International Development Week 2019!
Join Lizra Fabien, of the Dominica Association of Industry and Commerce as we discuss Stakeholder engagements and gender mainstreaming for climate resilience, and climate fund initiatives.
Dominica is one of the Caribbean Countries that have suffered most from the exacerbating effective of climate change. Hurricanes Maria and Erika stopped short of destroying the island with back to back battering in 2016 and 2017.
Canada is among the countries that have responded to efforts to help Dominica and other Caribbean islands to become climate resilient.
We are therefore delighted to hear from Lizra who represents duty-bearers in the private sector on the topic of stakeholder engagements, how they are working, and the gaps for delivering related solutions that deliver gender equality, and climate resilience. DAIC members are also right-holders in their roles as individuals and citizens.
Thank you Lizra for having shared so richly!

This interview is an extract from the Fireside Chat: Stakeholder Engagements and Gender Mainstreaming for ensuring Gender Equality and Climate Resilience in the Context of initiatives that are financed with Climate Funds.
Men and women differ in terms of gender, but also in how they contribute to making worst the effective of climate change.
They differ as right holders in climate change.
Women often face greater challenges and suffer more as a result of climate change.
Men’s fertility might be negatively impacted by climate change says one study by the University of East Anglia (November 2018).
As entrepreneurs, men and women lead business that share the role of duty-bears in mitigating climate change along with national governments.
Organizations and governments must work together to uphold and promote human rights in the context of climate change.
Climate resilience programmes can bring opportunities for businesses, individuals, communities, individuals, and nations.
One thing is clear climate proofing Caribbean islands (some of which have suffered tremendous loss) is expensive, complex, and will require working together.
Climate fund is a key ingredient in financing resilience programmes; and Canada has provided funding for supporting Caribbean nations on their journey to climate resilience.
The success and impact of such programmes is also dependent on deep engagement, ownership, gender equality, equitable distribution of benefits and opportunities.
Besides the reduction of risks, increased adaptive capacity, new or strengthened competencies, etc., poverty reduction is also another key indicator of a climate proof Caribbean.
Given, preceding and other issues not discussed it is clear that stakeholder engagement processes are also crucial to the success of such intervention and overall change for sustaining and advancing climate resilience.
How can we design and implement stakeholder engagements processes that leverages gender mainstreaming for ensuring gender equality as it relates to climate resilience initiatives that are funded by climate fund?
Join us on February 8th, 2019 at 12:00 noon, for a Fireside Chat on stakeholder engagements and gender mainstreaming for ensuring gender equality in relation to Climate Change, Climate Resilience, Green Fund, and other Climate Fund initiatives in the Caribbean.
