Understanding the role of knowledge, attitudes, behaviours, and practices in coordination mechanisms for climate change and disaster risk reduction

This study aims to increase understanding of gender-related perceptions and biases and how they play out in coordination mechanisms for climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction as a basis for determining how they can be challenged at the individual and institutional level. The analysis was developed based on data from nine countries: Antigua and Barbuda, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and Suriname.
