Briefing book on gender & urban climate policy published

It’s finally completed and available in print and for download: My briefing book
Book Cover: Gender and Urban Climate Policy. Gender-sensitive policies make a difference
The handbook indicates ways for local governments to integrate the gender dimensions of climate change into the various stages of policy-making, with a focus on low- and middle-income countries. It is not meant to be exhaustive, but rather a starting point which introduces gender concepts and gender dimensions of climate change at urban levels, and offers resources, tools and ideas for action to decision-makers, consultants and practitioners. Moreover, it is to assist women’s groups and community based organisations to get involved in local climate policy and to advocate for a gender-responsive approach.
