Gender approaches in climate compatible development: Lessons from Peru

The majority of studies on gender and climate change have been conducted in rural contexts, pointing to clear evidence gaps with respect to climate compatible development interventions that integrate a gender approach in urban areas. With the aim of contributing new evidence on the subject, this study asks how climate compatible development interventions in urban areas have integrated gender approaches. It seeks to respond to the question by analysing the outcomes, opportunities and challenges of this process, based on the experiences of Risk Management and Climate Change Adaptation Networks in Peru. Known locally as GRIDES, the networks have been operating in different regions of the country for the past 20 years. The study concludes that a gender-based approach to climate compatible development is fundamental for achieving transformational change.
