Gender mainstreaming in all of EUROCLIMA+ activities

EUROCLIMA+ recognizes the importance and commitment of both the Latin America countries and the European Union to achieve gender equality, understood as the right of women and men to access the same benefits and resources under equal conditions.

For this reason, EUROCLIMA+ includes an objective to achieve gender equality and promote the empowerment of women through the actions and projects to be developed within the framework of the Program. In order to ensure compliance with the gender objective within the framework of the Program, an institutional assessment was carried out during 2018, to identify inputs for the creation of a EUROCLIMA+ gender policy.

In addition,  a toolkit was designed so that the project implementing organizations can identify and solve the gender gaps that are present in the scope of their actions. In addition, during 2021 a  virtual support window was implemented to provide technical support to projects that wanted to strengthen their gender mainstreaming work.

On-line support window

During 2020, an on-line support window was launched, as a pilot action, whose objective was to provide technical support to sectoral projects interested in further strengthening their gender mainstreaming activities. The technical assistance provided through the on-line window focused on three axes: capacity building; institutional analysis and documentation review. Through these axes, internal training activities were coordinated, good practices were identified and exchange and training sessions were facilitated, among others.


During 2019 and 2020, a gender toolkit was designed, with the aim of supporting organizations implementing EUROCLIMA+ projects, in their gender mainstreaming initiatives. The contents of this toolkit were validated with the implementing organizations through the start-up workshops of the sectoral projects. Its content was also used during the technical support provided to seven sectoral projects during 2020, which generated additional tools that were later integrated into the toolkit. The toolkit was modified for an external audience and published in 2021 as the Estudio Temático 17: Transversalizando la perspectiva de género en proyectos de acción climática.
