Toward gender-responsive Ecosystem-based Adaptation: Why it’s needed and how to get there
The purpose of this report is twofold: to illustrate the
importance of integrating gender considerations in Ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA)
actions and to provide concrete examples of how this can
be done in practice. It is designed for EbA practitioners
and adaptation policy-makers, including government
decision-makers and technical support staff, civil society
organisations, private sector enterprises, and research
institutions. The report begins with a description of the
rationale for integrating gender considerations in EbA
action from both a policy and a practical perspective.
It then outlines what gender-responsive EbA looks
like in practice, introducing a set of broadly applicable
building blocks, followed by case examples that
illustrate how the building blocks have been applied
in different contexts. Finally, recommendations are
provided to improve the practice of gender-responsive
EbA going forward.
