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.

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.

Workshop on sand and dust storms (SDS) technologies to control dust storms sources with focus on degraded lands, dried up riverbeds and lakes, and plains and agricultural fieldsType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:ImplementationCountries:
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.

Development of an institutional framework for the installment, use and management of solar PV systems in the GambiaType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:DesignCountries:Sectors:
In finding a sustainable, affordable and reliable energy solution to meet its needs, the Gambia has incorporated in its energy strategy a solution to leapfrog previous development pathways and power its economies and societies through renewable energy decarbonisation of the electricity sector. Solar PV is the most common renewable energy technology used in the Gambia and remains the most promising renewable energy technology in the provision of electricity and water pumping in certain parts of the country.
Feasibility study for Carbon Mineralization by using CO2 issued from coal power plant for recycling ash slag in Cao Ngan coal power plantType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:DesignCountries:Cross-sectoral enabler:
Currently, there exist 20 coal-fired power plants in operation with a total capacity of nearly 14,500 MW, which generate about 15.7 million tons of coal slag per year, of which coal ash accounts for 75%. It is predicted that by the year 2020, there will be 43 factories, which will generate more than 30 million tons of coal slag per year. At present, there are no suitable solutions for this huge amount of slag.
Conducting a Technology Needs Assessment (TNA) and a Technology Action Plan (TAP) for the implementation of NDCsType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:DesignCountries:Sectors:
Equatorial Guinea plans to conduct its Technology Needs Assessment (TNA) with a Technology Action Plan (TAP), in view of the implementation of its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC). Equatorial Guinea has never initiated the process of carrying out this assessment before the development of its NDC, which is one of the new operational requirements to accelerate its implementation.
