UNDP Africa's Women's Empowerment work
Through our global and African networks, UNDP works to ensure women have a real voice in all governance institutions, from the judiciary to the civil service, as well as in the private sector and civil society, so they can participate equally with men in public dialogue and decision-making and influence the decisions that will determine the future of their families and countries.
This paper focuses on the links between gender and climate change adaptation and highlights strategies UNDP's Africa Adaptation Programme (AAP) used to mainstream gender into climate change adaptation policy and increase women's engagement in decision-making.
