SPC Training Links Gender Analysis and Climate Change Resilience

SPC27 June 2012: The Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC) held a training session on gender and climate change  for Fiji officers from government ministries and NGOs, aimed at strengthening participants' understanding of the gender analysis approach, and enabling them to apply gender analysis in the context of climate change. The training convened from 20-22 June 2012, in Suva, Fiji.

According to SPC, understanding the different roles of women, men, youth and children, is critical to reducing vulnerability and enhancing resilience to the impacts of climate change. The workshop aimed to enhance understanding of these differing roles, enabling participants to identify effective interventions for the improved management of limited resources in the face of a changing climate.

The workshop was organized by the SPC/German International Development Cooperation (GIZ) programme, Coping with Climate Change in the Pacific Region. [SPC Press Release]
