CARE Vietnam Learning Series

Gender and Inclusion Toolbox
This manual is a resource and toolbox for NGO practitioners and programme designers interested in diagnostic and action research for gender sensitive and socially inclusive climate change programmes in the rural development context.
Gender Sensitive Climate Vulnerability and Capacity Analysis
The GCVCA practitioners guidebook provides a framework for analysing vulnerability and capacity to adapt to climate change and build resilience to disasters at the community level, with a particular focus on social and in particular gender dynamics, based on experiences of using the approach in Mozambique. It incorporates and builds on content from the Climate Vulnerability and Capacity Analysis (CVCA) Handbook, which has been used and adapted in different ways since its initial release in 2009, within CARE and with other organisations.
Integrating Climate Change Adaptation into the Project Cycle
A Toolkit for Integrating Climate Change into the Development Project Cycle was produced by CARE International, with technical input by the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD). The toolkit provides practical assistance for adapting design, implementation, monitoring & evaluation to meet the challenges posed by climate change.
