This manual addresses the GCF’s potential to mainstream gender into climate finance, building on its mandate to support a paradigm shift to low-emission and climate-resilient development. The GCF is the newest of the UNFCCC financial mechanisms. The manual is intended for use by climate change project proponents from governments, international and national direct access entities, and civil society organizations. It reviews the GCF Gender Policy and related programming provisions, including readiness support. It covers a number of gender mainstreaming tools and methodological approaches, which can be employed in designing projects, including gender analysis, gender assessment and action plans, and gender-responsive results or logical frameworks. These methodologies and tools are applicable to a broad range of climate change mitigation and adaptation initiatives. The manual focuses on the minimum set of tools needed to meet the core requirements of the GCF project cycle.
