    The training manual is composed of 5 learning blocks beginning with an overall introduction to the training by creating an enabling space for personal gender reflection. This is followed by sessions to build a foundation for gender analysis which unpack the concept of gender and gender roles through the Harvard Analytical Framework to facilitate the understanding of practical implications. Gender equity and equality is emphasized in forestry interventions as the goal of gender mainstreaming. The core components of gender mainstreaming in gender-sensitive actions are discussed. The practical tools for mainstreaming gender into forestry interventions are explored through project management cycles from assessment until evaluation and re-planning process. Gender mainstreaming in organization is also addressed with specific action points for each participant to follow after the training.

    Gender mainstreaming in agriculture and food security: FAO Türkiye’s experiences 2021 2022

    FAO Türkiye, in line with its overall mandate, supports the Turkish Government in close collaboration and synergy with line ministries, UN agencies, international organizations, civil society organizations, academia, and the private sector to strengthen three priority areas: food and nutrition security and safety; sustainable forest and natural resources management, including fisheries; and institutional capacity enhancement of the public and private sectors. Gender is one of the crosscutting themes that is mandatorily mainstreamed within all projects and regular work under the above-mentioned priority areas. FAO Türkiye’s actions for the implementation of gender commitments are guided by the FAO Policy on Gender Equality 2020–2030 which recognizes that persistent inequalities between women and men constitute a major obstacle to agriculture and rural development; and that eliminating these disparities is essential to building sustainable and inclusive food systems and resilient and peaceful societies. The implementation of equality goals and targets are the shared responsibility of line ministries, other government offices and civil society organizations. The National Action Plan on Women’s Empowerment 2018–2023 aims promote women’s participation in economic and social life; ensure women’s equal access to rights and opportunities; and mainstream the principle of equality between women and men into all the main state plans and programmes. In response to the challenges, FAO Türkiye cooperates with the Turkish Government to deliver a range of gender mainstreamed and women-focused actions. This compilation of practices from the field aims to raise awareness among practitioners by sharing experiences and lessons learned to develop future actions.

    Gender mainstreaming in climate investments in the agriculture, forestry and other land use sector in Europe and Central Asia
    Regional resource guide
    2023
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This resource guide aims to support decision-makers, development practitioners, trainers and civil society organizations representing both farmers and rural women in designing and implementing climate investment projects and programmes in the Europe and Central Asia Region. It features a practical conceptual framework to enhance gender mainstreaming in climate investment programming with a particular emphasis on the Green Climate Fund and Global Environment Facility modalities. The resource guide highlights practical examples and lessons learned relating to gender mainstreaming from the FAO regional climate investment portfolio by featuring six gender mainstreaming experiences (Armenia, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova, Kosovo, Tajikistan and the region of Central Asia) delivering “better production, better nutrition, a better environment and a better life” as described in the FAO Strategic Framework 2022–2031. The case studies demonstrate how key results contribute to women’s empowerment, by increasing their access to decision-making mechanisms and realizing women’s pivotal role in taking forward climate change adaptation and mitigation work at the three levels of intervention (policy, institutional and beneficiary). The resource guide includes appendices providing tools and further resources, as well as a glossary.
