A Rapid Analysis of the Gender Intentionality of Africa’s Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs)

This paper focuses on integrating gender strategies into Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) of African countries and builds on insights from IUCN, Africa NDC hub, and AfDB. It investigates gender intentionality using several dimensions including gender-responsive budgeting in African NDCs.

More importantly, the paper explores whether countries are mobilizing and allocating climate finance with a gender lens. It makes recommendations for governments, financiers, and investors to ensure climate finance is not gender-neutral.
