Abstract

Addressing the climate challenge rests inter alia on the availability of adequate and sustainable climate-smart finance, along with properly designed mechanisms for its smooth provision. Leveraging such mechanisms has the potential to address socio-economic imbalances and political grievances that aggravate communities’ vulnerability and reduce their resilience to the impacts of climate change and extremes. Implementing an inclusive approach, that takes into account the needs, interests and differential vulnerabilities of men and women, in all aspects of project development, including the conceptual phase, programme design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation, will ensure resilience, project sustainability and gender equality.
