UN Women will support programmes that strengthen the capacity of government institutions and non-state actors to promote climate-smart agricultural interventions with better support women and girls, enable more women to have access to and use modern, renewable and affordable energy sources, technology and services, and champion women’s increased participation and leadership in climate action at all levels, including in gender-responsive green and blue economies and climate-resilient agriculture. The entity also offers technical support to the government to develop gender responsive disaster risk reduction policies and plans including disaster preparedness plans.
