Women commonly face higher risks and greater burdens from the impacts of climate change in situations of poverty, and their needs must therefore be addressed to ensure efficient and equitable climate mitigation and adaptation. Including women in climate decision-making allows for more efficient planning as women are best equipped to understand the impact they are experiencing themselves. As technology is not gender neutral, working with climate technologies requires that consideration be taken to ensure that women are included in decision-making processes, use of technologies, and benefit from the outcomes of technologies. Below you will find related publications, partners, CTCN technical assistance, technologies and other information for exploring this topic further.

    The Gambia Women’s Initiative is a project that spun off from Power Up Gambia’s project at Sulayman Junkung General Hospital. As part of the close connection with the town of Bwiam, several volunteers with Power Up Gambia wanted to work on projects directly with the village womens group to help financially poor women in The Gambia increase their income, thereby improving the standard  of living for their families and their communities.  They formed GWI, and brought on an experienced women’s development coordinator, Isatou Ceesay, to help organize
