Timor-Leste is currently facing a lack of awareness of the potential impacts of climate change, as well as limited capacity to respond to it due to limited financial resources, technology and human capacity. The Government, therefore, wants to improve technical and managerial skills of government technical staff so that they can transfer knowledge and skills to the community regarding access to solar PV.
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.
