Lizra Fabien – Stakeholder Engagement and Gender Mainstreaming for Climate Resilience and Climate Fund Initiatives

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.

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.

Location: Magate Wildhorse Facebook Page

Purpose: The Community of Practice for Caribbean Immigrant Entrepreneurs aims to connect entrepreneurs, consultants, and providers of professional services (solopreneurs, individual consultants, and businesses with 2 or more members of staff) to a connected diasporic market, learning, networks, networking, financing, and opportunities to co-create and gain mastery of business know-how.

The goal is to create that safe space for meeting of minds, markets, resource sharing, research, learning, support, knowledge transfer, building of social capital, collaboration, cooperation, and creativity for accelerating the growth of Caribbean immigrant entrepreneurs. Two-way learning and growth between diaspora and home countries and increased member capacity to create jobs for Caribbeans by Caribbeans are also among the expect results of The CoP.

You know what you need most? You know what exist in your neck of the woods. You also know what is missing most, and what you would most love to see changed.  In addition, we would be delighted to have your contribution to shaping a CoP initiative that is currently in its infancy.

By participating in this focus group consultation, you’re helping to shape The CoP. But more than that you are helping to improve and ensure its relevance and offer.  The information that you share will serve to help our people to succeed in creating a more inclusive entrepreneurship space for themselves. You are also helping to create a more supporting environment for your business, and most of all you are helping peoples of the Caribbean and their peers to benefit from their right to economic freedom. Your host country will also be rewarded by your role in helping your immigrants who share your roots to make a bigger and better contribution to their societies.  You’ll also find out who are the members of The CoP Steering Committee.

The CoP presents an opportunity to demonstrate our symbols of freedom; and ability to attain social and economic progress in large numbers―across vast geographic areas. Our ability to contribute to home and host countries, as well as to share that with non-Caribbean members such as African-Americans, Africans at home and in the diaspora, Canadians with no history of family business, and immigrant entrepreneurs who are not native speakers of English. It presents a terrific opportunity to overcome the barriers of “foreignness”, lack of entrepreneurial experience, and more.

Your responses will be summarized along with other responses and used collectively to help guide decision-making. No names or identifying information will be used when compiling this information.
