Kulima running training in Botswana on gender mainstreaming in climate change projects

Dr Katharine Vincent is in Gaborone this week, running a training course on gender mainstreaming in climate change projects for Forest Conservation Botswana. The workshop has been organised with the support of the Southern Africa Climate Finance Partnership (a programme supported by DFID and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation), and aims to build capacity to develop gender-responsive project concept notes and proposals that are successful in receiving resources from the Green Climate Fund. Katharine will be providing an introduction to gender and climate change, and then outlining the process of designing gender-responsive projects, including the gender assessment and gender action plan.

Kulima running gender session at the Southern African Climate Finance Partnership regional learning forum

Dr Katharine Vincent is in Maun this week at the second regional learning forum of the Southern African Climate Finance Partnership (SACFP). Funded by the UK's Department For International Development and Swiss Agency for Development Cooperation, SACFP is supporting Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe to develop country-owned and managed climate finance portfolios that can be financed through the Green Climate Fund (GCF) and other climate finance avenues. The Regional Learning Forum is an opportunity to share experiences and Katharine will run a session on developing gender-responsive proposals that meet the criteria in the GCF's Gender Policy. This follows on from earlier training in Botswana on gender and climate change.
