Gender and State Climate Change Action Plans in India

This policy research on gender and climate change adaptation was triggered by a growing understanding that India’s adaptation policies must be gender-responsive, given that adaptive capacities and vulnerabilities to climate change are different for men and women.

Objectives

  • Influence four State-level governments in India to mainstream and articulate gender and inclusiveness in their SAPCC
  • Demonstrate that adaptation policies need to promote climate-resilient low-input agricultural practices and address gender-based differences
  • Unveil the truth behind adaptation-related gender budgeting in the four Selected States
  • The project focussed on the States of Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and West Bengal.

Outcomes

  • Incorporating gender components in State-level Climate Change Action Plans (SAPCCs)
  • Undertaking primary research to highlight the gender dimensions of adaptive practices in agriculture
  • Examining state budgets for allocations to adaptation sectors and to gender within them
