Integrating Gender, Climate Change, and Nutrition in Development Programming

Event Date:

9:30 am to 11:00 am EST
Online Event
International Food Policy Research Institute


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.

Please join us on Wednesday, December 6 from 9:30am-11:00am EST for a presentation of the GCAN framework and a discussion of its potential to support development programming. The webinar will also feature the perspective of an implementing partner, Mercy Corps, who will share their approaches and tools for integrating gender and resilience into their programming.
