File Training Guide: Gender and Climate Change Research in Agriculture and Food Security For Rural Development by Portal Web Editor — last modified Jan 20, 2014 02:47 AM
Concurrently, it is internationally recognized that addressing gender issues in agriculture reduces hunger and poverty. In fact, it is estimated that more than 100 million people could be lifted out of poverty if women had the same access to and control of resources as men (FAO, 2011a). Although they are important food producers and providers, women presently have limited access to and control of resources. However, to date, these ideas – that climate change and gender issues are integral parts of agricultural development – have not been implemented in an effective way. This guide seeks to fill that gap by supporting work to investigate the gender dimensions of responding to climate change in the agriculture and food security sectors. The final goals are to improve food production, livelihood security and gender equality in the context of the changing climate.
File Gender Analysis for the Central Africa Regional Program for the Environment (CARPE) Phase III by Portal Web Editor — last modified Sep 17, 2013 10:21 PM
The Central Africa Regional Program for the Environment (CARPE) is one of USAID’s largest and most prominent biodiversity conservation programs. As CARPE will enter its third phase in FY2014 a number of analyses were commissioned to inform the redesign, including a policy analysis and an institutional analysis. To date, a full gender analysis had not been carried out for CARPE although an excellent desk study with key informant interviews (Diamond 2002) provided guidance over the last decade. While gender analysis is required in project design, in this case there was also a need felt by both USAID/CARPE staff and existing partners to fully explore the issue: to document what CARPE has been doing; to consider gender dimensions of Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation Plus (REDD+) as CARPE III will start significant programming in this area; and most importantly to see how CARPE can contribute to Agency goals of gender equality and women’s empowerment in the challenging context of central Africa.
File Evidence Summary: Ecosystem-based Adaptation and Extreme Events by FRAME Administrator — last modified Oct 27, 2017 11:11 AM
This evidence summary highlights specific ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) approaches that can help communities adapt to extreme weather and other climate events such as floods, storm surges, landslides, fires, droughts and heat waves. It also explains the role of EbA in urban and rural resilience to extreme events, differences between EbA and ecosystem-based approaches to disaster risk reduction and how EbA compares with and complements built infrastructure.

File USAID GLOBAL ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT SUPPORT (GEMS) SECTOR ENVIRONMENTAL GUIDELINE: ARTISANAL AND SMALL-SCALE MINING by Portal Web Editor — last modified Apr 02, 2018 04:27 PM
This document presents one sector of the Sector Environmental Guidelines (SEGs) prepared for United States Agency for International Development (USAID) under the Agency’s Global Environmental Management Support (GEMS) program. All sectors are accessible at http://www.usaidgems.org/sectorGuidelines.htm. Purpose. The purpose of this document is to support environmentally sound design and management (ESDM) of common USAID sectoral development activities by providing concise, plain-language information regarding: • The typical, potential adverse impacts of activities in these sectors (e.g., mining, agriculture, construction, fisheries, health care), including climate change considerations; • How to prevent or otherwise mitigate these impacts, both in the form of general activity design guidance and specific design, construction, and operating measures; • How to minimize vulnerability of activities to climate change, as well as contributions of activities to climate change; • More resources for further analysis of these issues; and • How to develop environmental compliance applications.

USFS technical experts provided guidance on structuring an analysis of the hydrology of the region, with a particular focus on the improvement of the water supply for local communities. The specific goals of this mission were as follows: 1. Evaluate the overall state of water resources in Mgahinga and Bwindi National Parks; 2. Identify appropriate methods for surveying water sources of sufficient quantity and quality for local communities, wildlife, and forest ecosystems. Perform on-the-ground surveying of water sources with IGCP staff in as many areas as possible, given time restraints; 3. Assess, to the greatest extent possible, the demand on water resources by local communities and forest ecosystems; 4. Provide recommendations on sustainable management of the source areas in order to assure long term water availability; 5. Present a half-day workshop for local natural resource managers on water resource issues and recommendations for the region.

File Integrating Biodiversity and Climate Change Adaptation in Activity Design by Gateway Web Editor — last modified Jan 30, 2018 09:54 AM
This brief provides recommendations that can be implemented at various stages of the USAID program cycle to achieve appropriate and effective integration. It should also be useful to other funding and implementing organizations. We focus primarily at the activity level, but scoping recommendations and approaches also apply to the project design (PAD) level. This brief is accompanied by four case studies of USAID activities with i) Biodiversity Conservation and Climate Change Adaptation in Activity Design funding, ii) Biodiversity Conservation funding only and iii) Climate Change Adaptation in Activity Design funding only. Approaches and best practices learned from those activities (in the Nepal, Southern Africa Regional, Ecuador, and Asia Regional missions) have informed this brief.
