The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) has contracted IMC Worldwide to undertake a Climate Investment Funds (CIF)-funded evaluation and learning (EL) activity in Tajikistan, assessing how gender considerations have been integrated into the Pilot Programme for Climate Resilience (PPCR)-funded activities.
This was investigated by examining the design and implementation of policy-level PPCR activities and private sector-focused adaptation investment projects.
IMC, in consortium with M Vector, is delivering evidence on successful strategies and failed methods, distributing information that will help sustain and enhance effective integration of gender considerations in climate resilience programming within the private sector and providing guidance and recommendations for related projects based on the correct and most efficient procedures.
In April 2018, IMC conducted a stakeholder workshop to outline the assessment and knowledge management approach ahead of the CIF-funded evaluation and learning activity focused on gender sensitivity, climate resilience and private sector investments. The workshop incorporated an in-depth analysis of climate change and gender issues in Tajikistan.
IMC has completed an evaluation paper, a knowledge and dissemination strategy and a presentation of preliminary results of the EL activity to CIF.
We are currently undertaking an evaluation report, presenting our key findings and observations.
The eight-month project will utilise case studies to demonstrate how gender considerations were integrated into policy and investment planning to enhance climate resilience. These will encompass existing EBRD projects to inform future programmes and strengthen national capabilities to successfully integrate gender reflections.
A final high-level stakeholder workshop will be executed in Dushanbe, to share findings, conclusions, recommendations and lessons learned.
