Technologies are not gender neutral, and tackling climate change demands that everyone's experience and skills are utilized. Therefore climate technology action needs to ensure that women and men are both engaged in decision-making processes, development and use of technologies, and benefit from their outcomes. Women commonly face higher risks and greater burdens from the impacts of climate change, and their needs must be addressed to ensure effective and equitable climate change actions. Women also bring new perspectives and innovations in identifying and implementing solutions. Below you will find gender-related publications, partners, CTCN technical assistance, technologies and other information for exploring the topic of gender and climate change solutions further.
Application of the gravity-driven membrane (GDM) technology for supplying sustainable drinking water to rural communitiesType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:DesignCountries:Objective:Sectors:Cross-sectoral enabler:
Cambodia has limited access to high water quality and hygiene. Although there has been an improvement in urban areas, most rural areas still have difficulties in water and sanitation access. Sufficient supply of safe water (including drink water) is crucial for rural people and would enable them to adapt to climate change, particularly in the prolonged drought situation that have occurred in Cambodia.

Cambodia is vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. Although the Government has tried the utmost effort to install and contract electricity line rural areas, there is still no still access to the national grid. To meet the objectives of the Government to access to electricity consumption, off-grid (solar, battery, kerosene lamp) has been introduced, especially in the remote areas.

The Kyrgyz Republic is a land locked and lower-middle-income country of 6,3 million population endowed with natural resources including minerals, glaciers, arable land, forestry and pastures. The country is the third most vulnerable to climate change impacts in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, due to its dependency on and sensitivity of agricultural systems.
Improving resilience of the education system to climate change impacts in the Eastern Caribbean region for Saint Lucia and Antigua and BarbudaType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:DesignSectors:
Saint Lucia is a Small Island Development State (SIDS), which is highly at risk from climate change, mainly due to its location along the North Atlantic hurricane corridor, its small surface area, geographic location and its economic reliance on tourism and agriculture, which are climate-sensitive factors. The country’s limited capacity to reconstruct and reactivate its economy after climate-related shocks renders it highly vulnerable. Because of its small geographic size and dependence on natural resources any extreme weather event can have national implications.

Vanuatu is a small island country in the Pacific which depends almost entirely on imported fossil fuel for its energy and transport needs. The continuous reliance on these fossil fuels is not only unsustainable for Vanuatu but goes against Vanuatu’s national climate change mitigation ambition as reflected in its Nationally Determined Contributions, its Climate Change and Disaster Risk Reduction Policy, its National Energy Roadmap and Vanuatu’s Sustainable Development Plan.

FAST TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE
During the last two decades, sand and dust storms (SDS) phenomena have escalated in the world and particularly in West Asia and the Southern and Western parts of Iran, especially in Khuzestan province. The affected areas are faced with low food security. This is a threat to human life, flora and fauna in the affected regions. According to several studies, the intensity and frequency of dust storms due to climate change has increased in Iran.
