This Final Report summarizes the presentations and findings presented at WEDO’s Gender & Climate Change Workshop in Dakar, Senegal, in June 2008. Case studies of Senegal, Ghana, Nepal and Trinidad were presented.

a) Contribute to country-specific needs assessments on gender and climate change;
b) Identify policy options and outline advocacy strategies; and
c) Determine action recommendations for governments and civil society to incorporate women’s participation and a gender perspective into their national climate change adaptation plans.
