15 Mar 2016 - 13:00

Moderated by Tali Hoffman, Communications Lead for the ASSAR project Adaptation at Scale in Semi-Arid Regions (ASSAR); African Climate and Development Initiative (ACDI); University of Cape Town.

But what is the best way to integrate gender, and how can we use them to design programmes which have resilience-building measures and risk reduction strategies at their heart?

The webinar drew on experiences from development practitioners and considered what we have learnt about the importance of integrating gender issues into VAs.
