The Institute is currently implementing a program on Gender and Climate Change geared towards STRENGTHENING INSTITUTIONAL CAPACITY FOR INTEGRATION OF GENDER AND SOCIAL ISSUE IN CLIMATE CHANGE IN KENYA. The purpose of the gender advocacy training in climate change is to equip participants with knowledge and skills in advocating for gender in climate change.

The overall goal of the IEWMs program on gender advocacy in climate change is to ensure that related policies, programmes, decisions and initiatives are gender responsive. This is based on the growing evidence that the impacts of climate change have different impacts on women and men given their social roles and associated responsibilities.

IEWM has embarked on awareness raising of the differentiated impacts of climate change on women and men through dialogues, seminars and through its climate change portal among many other efforts. The gender advocacy training is one of the efforts to ensure that national policies and programs take cognizance of gender and social considerations as there is need for increased and sustained advocacy at the policy and decision making levels.

The target participants are Non- governmental Organizations, Gender focal points, private sector and government institutions. The training is scheduled to take place on 26th to 28th June 2013 as a residential training in Nairobi, Kenya. For further inquiries kindly contact us.
