Training of Trainers (ToT) Package on Gender, Climate Resilience and Disaster Risk Reduction

Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), both those working on climate resilience and disaster risk reduction as well as on women’s rights and gender equality, have a major role to play in mainstreaming gender in climate policies, programmes and projects. Knowledge gaps and limited capacities of these CSOs, however, is a major barrier to achieving the desired levels of gender integration. To enhance the understanding and strengthen skills and capacities of CSOs UN Women has developed a Training Manual on Gender and Climate Resilience. This Training of Trainers (ToT) package has been designed to support trainers for application of the content and tools delineated in the manual. The package includes a) Preparatory Materials like concept note, baseline and needs assessment format and sample agenda to help in the planning of the ToT; b) PowerPoint presentations on topics included on the sample agenda; c) Guidance notes for group exercises; and d) Facilitator references and handouts related to the sessions. Most of the content is available in editable format for users to download and customize as per the local context and target audience.
