Training module 2
This module provides basic information and learning tools needed to understand and advocate for the integration of gender perspectives into regional, national, and community climate change adaptation and disaster risk initiatives.
It covers the following topics:
- An integrated response to climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction
- Gender dimensions of climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction
- The need and options for gender-responsive climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction.
Part II of this module outlines learning objectives and presents what users can expect to know when the training concludes. Part III spells out the key take-away messages, followed by Part IV, which presents the value of integrated disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation in the quest to advance sustainable human development, and Parts V and VI, which address gendered vulnerabilities to climate and disaster risk and options for making the twin goals of climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction gender-responsive.
At the end of the training, users will have a strong understanding of the merits of an integrated response to climatic and disaster risk in the context of sustainable human development, gender-related vulnerabilities to climatic and disaster risk and the positive and important roles that women play in climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction and management efforts.
