Achieving the goals of sustained poverty reduction, nutritional security, and elimination of hunger requires careful consideration of cross-cutting issues such as climate resilience, gender, and nutrition. However, integrating these complex and nuanced cross-cutting issues into development programming remains a challenge. IFPRI’s Gender, Climate Change, and Nutrition Integration Initiative (GCAN) is supporting the Bureau for Food Security at USAID to integrate climate-resilience, gender and nutrition considerations into US development programming as part of the Global Food Security Strategy (GFSS).
As part of this effort, GCAN has developed a conceptual framework that highlights linkages, synergies, and tradeoffs between these various themes to serve as a frame for 1) synthesizing evidence within a given context, 2) communicating key issues with decisionmakers, and 3) implementing climate-, nutrition-, and gender-sensitive programs.
This webinar also featured the perspective of an implementing partner, Mercy Corps, who shared their approaches and tools for integrating gender and resilience into their programming.
