Implications for Korea on implementing its future gender-mainstreaming strategies for climate technology cooperation with developing countries on the basis of the gender-mainstreaming efforts of the CTCN and the GCF

About this video

Dr Oh explains how gender mainstreaming is implemented in cooperation projects with developing countries.  The requirements is that the applicant includes goals to achieve gender equality in cross-cutting areas, in line with the country’s climate policy directions. The proposal must include a gender analysis with discussions on improving gender relations & qualitative analysis based on sex-disaggregated data. However, the CTCN’s financial resources are not provided at this stage. There is a limitation in the availability of gender analysis experts. Providing gender-related assistance to the applicant is needed. Gender elements are included in the selection/approval criteria.  Once the project is selected, the project implementers prepare actions plans according to the gender analysis, aiming to improve gender relations of the project beneficiaries. The implementers closely cooperate with the local women groups, organizing/ managing capacity-building activities in a gender-sensitive/responsive manner.
