    Building Capacities to Develop Gender-Sensitive Climate Change Adaptation Proposals for Funding Consideration in Caribbean Small Island Developing States - GCP/SLC/019/CAN 2022
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Owing to their small size, position in tropical cyclone belts and dependence on agriculture and tourism, Small Island Developing States (SIDS) in the Caribbean are particularly vulnerable to climate change and its effects. The agrifood systems of these countries require adaptive measures to support resilience to climate change and sustainability to ensure food and nutrition security and to reduce the impacts of climate change on vulnerable groups, including women and Indigenous Peoples. This project was designed to support efforts to increase adaptive measures in targeted SIDS (Antigua and Barbuda, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and Suriname) by building national capacities to develop concept notes and full proposals for gender sensitive climate adaptation projects, so that these countries can access climate and environmental financing through the Green Climate Fund (GCF) and the Global Environmental Facility (GEF).

    Project
    Adopting Climate-Smart Agricultural Practices in African Small Island Developing States (SIDS) - GCP/RAF/506/MUL 2022
    Also available in:

    Small Island Developing States (SIDS) share similar sustainable development challenges, including susceptibility to natural disasters, vulnerability to external shocks, and excessive dependence on international trade. Fisheries, tourism and agriculture contribute significantly to national Gross Domestic Product (GDP); however, these sectors are particularly vulnerable to the changing climate. In this context, the project aimed to assist the six African SIDS (Cabo Verde, Comoros [the], Guinea Bissau, Mauritius, Sao Tome and Principe, and Seychelles), taking into account their unique vulnerabilities as well as their heterogeneity, to build climate change resiliency within their agricultural sectors through various development pathways. The project was implemented in three primary countries, namely Cabo Verde, Guinea Bissau and Seychelles; however, all six SIDS countries will benefit through intraregional exchange and knowledge sharing activities.

    Gender, agrifood value chains and climate-resilient agriculture in Small Island Developing States
    Evidence from: Barbados and Saint Lucia in the Caribbean, Palau and Samoa in the Pacific, Cabo Verde,the Comoros and Sao Tome and Principe in the Atlantic, Indian Ocean and South China Sea (AIS) region
    2022
    Also available in:

    In the current context of climate change, focusing on gender equality in the Small Island Developing States (SIDS) can drive improvements in resilience, food security and nutrition. This document seeks to enrich the knowledge and evidence base on gender, food systems and resilience in the SIDS of the Caribbean, the Pacific, and the Atlantic, Indian Ocean and South China Sea (AIS) region, providing evidence from Barbados, Cabo Verde, Comoros (the), Palau, Saint Lucia, Samoa and Sao Tome and Principe. It focuses specifically on gender-related roles, gender gaps and traditional knowledge in agriculture and natural resource management to better support women’s participation in value chains and the benefits they receive from value chain development. It calls for radical transformations to build resilient livelihoods, overcome gender inequalities and help rural women and men reduce their exposure and vulnerability to climate change and natural disasters. Furthermore, the transformations called for, which focus on gender equity, will increase the resilience of rural livelihoods to unforeseen events, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly in view of the critical role women play in ensuring food security and nutrition.
