Supported by the Australian Government’s Australian NGO Gender Action Platform, this was a collaborative project between ActionAid, The Huairou Commission and Monash University, designed to respond to the global gendered impacts of climate change. 8,000 women were empowered to take collective action in preparing for and responding to climate change and related-crises in Cambodia, Kenya, and Vanuatu. Recognising intersecting inequalities, this project supported diverse women’s engagement in relevant policy, planning and decision-making processes at sub-national, national and international levels, working in coalitions with other NGOs and allies. The project supports sharing of good practice and innovations through cross-country learning and skill-building among community women.

This program advanced gender equality by targeting unequal power relations in decision making in climate-change and crisis planning and response at all levels.
