National action plan on climate change napcc
National Action Plan on Climate Change (NAPCC)

Impact of climate change “particularly severe for women”

  • Scarcity of water, reduction in yields of forest biomass

  • Increased malnutrition, risks to human health - children, women and the elderly most malnourished, anaemic, vulnerable

  • Lower yields from dairy cattle and a decline in fish breeding - women main workers in dairy farming and fish processing

  • Lower harvests and distress migration - women and children left behind

    “Special attention to gender in the Adaptation Missions”


Gender blind state action plans on climate change
Gender-Blind State Action Plans on Climate Change

  • No focus on differential impacts and different capacities

  • Techno-managerial approach in State Plans with no scope for ‘bottoms-up’ learning from practice

  • State-level ongoing vulnerability studies only focus on physical natural resources, not on users and the social stratification of these users (HP, WB)

  • Structural essentials missing - women’s strategic roles in decision-making, participation at different fora, ownership & control of resources and as knowledge managers to combat climate variability

  • Thus, focus on even practical needs missing! Eg. GM & Agriculture; Carbon Seq. & Green India Mission


Limits to gender and sapccs
Limits to Gender and SAPCCs

  • Low status of nodal department (envt/forests)

  • Very high learning curve: no capacity building/exposure

  • Negligible understanding about climate change across departments

  • Almost nil understanding on gender

  • Gender & Climate change……

    ……Mainstreaming gender too tall an order in this scenerio


Our work gender equity in sapccs governance structures
Our Work: Gender Equity in SAPCCs & Governance Structures
