Gender assessment for FP060: Water Sector Resilience Nexus for Sustainability in Barbados (WSRN S-Barbados)

The gender analysis of the EWN-SCI project was conducted with the aim of identifying gender considerations and devising ways of streamlining gender equality in the project proposal. This analysis is intended to (i) provide an overview of existing national policies, strategies and action plans that elaborate on the importance of integrating gender perspectives into national Climate Change adaptation strategies related to water management and infrastructure in Barbados, (ii) develop an understanding of the project partners institutional capacity to meaningfully integrate gender considerations into the final project to align with best local, regional and international gender policies and practices, (iii) identify gender issues relevant for water management highlighting the socio-political, economic and cultural aspects of Climate Change adaptation and mitigation, and (iv) provide recommendations on how to mainstream gender in the proposal, and include specific tasks and activities designed to build capacity at the UWI Institute for Gender and Development Studies. It is anticipated that identification of these gender issues will highlight potential gaps in the EWN-SCI project goals that represent missed opportunities to align with stakeholder priorities, and that reinforce existing climate resiliency disparities. Project goals are expected to be adjusted to address these disparities and expand the potential project benefits.
