This webinar will look at ways in which gender can be mainstreamed in climate change adaptation planning for the agriculture sectors. The first presentation will provide the global context for gender mainstreaming, including updates coming out of the recent UNFCCC COP22 meetings in Marrakech. The second presentation will focus on how policy and planning can be better informed by research on the gender dimensions of climate change adaptation. The final presentation will look at experiences in Uganda of linking gender equality and agricultural development in the context of climate change. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions of the speakers and by the end should have a better understanding of the different options for mainstreaming gender issues into adaptation planning at different scales.
