Integrating gender into Ethiopia’s climate change portfolio and implementation became the focus of CDKN’s work in Ethiopia since 2019. The SSN team works closely with the Climate Resilient Green Economy (CRGE), which leads the climate change agenda in the country. In 2019, to take stock of what is being done at the national level to mainstream gender into climate change actions, CDKN supported the Government of Ethiopia to conduct a scoping study on gender and climate change institutional governance. This was followed by a stocktaking workshop. Based on the report’s outcomes and the subsequent dialogue, CDKN delivered training material to the CRGE Facility, including games on gender and socially-inclusive climate compatible development. This long-term partnership aims to build the CRGE’s capacity to deliver climate compatible development programmes that are inclusive and sustainable.
