IDW2019 A Fireside Chat ― Stakeholder Engagements, Gender Equality, & Climate Change

Magate Wildhorse IDW Fireside chat and interview International Development Week 2019 Global Affairs Canada

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.
