Résumé

The African Development Bank’s Department of Gender, Women and Civil Society (AHGC) designed, in partnership with the Climate Change and Green Growth Department (PECG), the AfDB/CIF's Inclusive Climate Action Initiative.  This initiative was  implemented by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) in 2019. The purpose of the Initiative was to support the concrete integration of gender into future Climate Invest Fund (CIF) initiatives implemented under the supervision and support of the Bank by conducting context-specific research, developing two case studies on good practices and producing a set of knowledge resources to support the work of the African Development Bank and its staff.

Les impacts positifs

One of the main impacts has been  private companies finding out their advance on gender mainstream in the implementation of projects and where they still have room for improvement.  In addition, the two case studies have information about good key practices for other projects on forest and land restoration and large-scale renewable energy to consider. They provide critical learning points  for guiding gender-responsive project design, implementation and M&E—showing the importance of including gender in staffing and programming.

In addition, after the training on gender and climate change provided to the African Development Bank’s Department of Gender, Women and Civil Society (AHGC)  and the Climate Change and Green Growth Department (PECG) staff, they are better prepare to support the strengthening of gender issues into the CIF projects.
