    This report showcases gender equality and women’s empowerment highlights in 2022 and 2023 and is divided into global and regional highlights. Its overall objective is to share major achievements, good practices and lessons learned in 2022–2023 and to guide FAO’s upcoming work to achieve gender equality and women’s empowerment. Gender equality and women’s empowerment is a cross-cutting theme that is inextricably linked to FAO's mandate and the priorities defined by its Strategic Framework (2022–2031). The FAO Policy on Gender Equality (2020–2030) states that “persisting inequalities between women and men are 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”.

    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.
