Global Evaluation Report: Gender Responsive Alternatives to Climate Change


Executive Summary

ActionAid Australia (AAA) commissioned an end-of-project evaluation for Gender Responsive Alternatives to Climate Change (GRACC) funded by DFAT, under the Gender Action Platform (GAP), and AAA. The two-year project (July 2017 – July 2019) was collaboratively designed and implemented with country partners in Cambodia, Kenya and Vanuatu. The overall project was managed by ActionAid Australia in partnership with global partners, Huairou Commission and Monash University Gender, Peace and Security Centre, ActionAid Cambodia, ActionAid Kenya (AAK), ActionAid Vanuatu and ActionAid International (AAI). Additional partners were numerous, identified as implementing partners which were beneficiaries of GRACC trainings as well as disseminating climate change/disaster risk response (CC/DRR) information. Strategic partners represented civil societies, county and national governments. Collectively, they used a gender responsive and human and women’s rights-based approach to CC/DRR.


The global project provided a strategic direction and focus on women’s empowerment outcomes. A number of key initiatives were implemented including a Theory of Change, Peer Learning Exchange, Grassroots Academy, Communities of Practice, research and baseline studies and a Framework for Gender-Responsive Alternatives on Climate Change.
