Supported by the Australian Government under the ANCP Gender Action Platform, this project in Vanuatu, ‘Women-Led Climate Resilience and Adaptation’, aims to build the capacity of women leaders to address gendered impacts of climate change and recurrent disasters and support the safety, security and dignity of women. This included supporting women to develop communications mechanisms to amplify their voices in calling for greater action by government and the humanitarian sector to address women, peace and security issues in disasters.


This project supported women leaders to strengthen their response to climate change, facilitating women-led dialogues on climate change preparedness, facilitating peer learning exchange with global communities, and hosting the first National Women’s Dialogue on Climate Change, Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and forced displacement. As the project continues, women will be supported to increase their knowledge of and capacity to respond to climate change, transforming gender norms in their communities.
