The Least Developed Countries Fund and the Special Climate Change Fund
In developing countries, the poor are extremely vulnerable to loss of assets and livelihoods due to water and food shortages, increased human and animal diseases, natural disasters and other climate related conditions and events. Whenever there is gender inequality related to land ownership, decision-making, and control over other resources, these losses will likely impact women more than men. There have been many positive initiatives to integrate gender equality issues into the LDCF and SCCF. This policy brief provides recommendations on further promoting gender equality and women’s empowerment through the design and implementation of LDCF and SCCF projects.
