Pacific Gender and Climate Change Toolkit

The Pacific Gender and Climate Change toolkit is designed to support climate change practitioners in the Pacific islands region to integrate gender into their programmes and projects. It is aimed at climate change professionals working in national governments, non-governmental organizations, regional and international organizations who are involved in managing and implementing climate change programmes.

This toolkit provides advice at a practical level, to address these needs. The principles and practices proposed in this toolkit are based on many decades of experience in the integration of a gender perspective in sustainable development, natural resources management and disaster preparedness. It is designed to be a living document which will be revised and added to in future. Its use will also be supported by training and technical assistance to further build capacity in the Pacific islands region to effectively integrate gender in all climate change initiatives.
