MaxixeFollowing Kulima's training of staff in the new gender-sensitive Climate Vulnerability and Capacity Analysis (GCVCA) methodology in August 2013, and then the facilitating of a planning workshop to design and prepare for the participatory research assessment in December 2013, Dr Katharine Vincent is currently in Maxixe to support the team and provide technical backstopping as they undertake their fieldwork for their GCVCA as part of the BMZ-funded project on Engendering Disaster Risk Reduction.  In-keeping with CARE's other activities in Maxixe, the assessment has been designed to provide inputs to the future implementation of existing programming around Early Child Development and sanitation and hygiene to ensure that implemented projects support gender equality and use appropriate gender-sensitive processes in order to reduce vulnerability for both men and women.
