Integrating Gender Perspectives into Climate and Conflict Sensitive Projects (Interactive Group Exercise)  
4 October, 3-4pm

Following last year’s coffee hour on gender, climate, and security, this event will “take stock” of advancements in programming at the gender-climate security nexus. This event takes place in the form of an interactive workshop with practitioners. Participants have the opportunity to learn from experts who have integrated gender into climate security programming in contexts where climate-related security risks are unfolding in different ways. The event aims to show and teach participants new skills for conducting analysis and/or designing theories of change that integrate gender, climate, and security.
