Through the funding support provided by the Global Affairs Canada and Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), Enabling Gender-Responsive Disaster Recovery, Climate and Environmental Resilience in the Caribbean (EnGenDER), seeks to further integrate gender equality and human-rights based approaches into disaster risk reduction (DRR), climate change (CC) adaptation and mitigation; environmental management frameworks and interventions. EnGenDER will also identify and address some of the gaps to ensure equal access to DRR and climate change and environmental solutions for both men, women, boys and girls in nine Caribbean countries (Antigua and Barbuda, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and Suriname).
The overall objective is to develop Gender-responsive Budgeted (GRB) Sectoral Adaptation Strategies and Action Plans (SASAPs) for the EnGenDER priority sectors of Agriculture and Water for Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. This will support the application of the gender budgeting approach through assigned budgeting (estimated costing) in the development of Gender-responsive SASAPs in-addition to project concepts and finally, in the development of country specific Gender-responsive Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) Plans for newly developed GRB SASAPs. These outputs would assist in achieving the project’s immediate Outcome 1110: “Improved national capacity for gender-responsive climate change adaptation and mitigation planning and implementation among state and non-state actors in the target countries”.
The objectives include:
- To develop Sectoral Adaptation Strategies and Action Plans (SASAPs) for the EnGenDER priority sectors of Agriculture and Water for Saint Vincent and the Grenadines based on the draft Agriculture Sector NAP and Water Sector NAP documents.
- To apply the of the gender budgeting approach in the development of the Gender-Responsive Budgeted (GRB) Sectoral Adaptation Strategies and Action Plans (SASAPs) and Project Concepts.
- To develop a gender-responsive Monitoring and Evaluation Plan for the newly developed Gender Responsive Budgeted (GRB) SASAPs per country.
