We are pleased to announce a new training module on gender equity and social inclusion in the WEFE-Nexus!
This module can be directly integrated into the existing WEF Nexus Training materials. By incorporating this as another important dimension in the Nexus, you can learn more about frameworks and tools for moving from resource-centric to people-centric Nexus approaches. Developed by the Alliance of Bioversity International and CIAT in cooperation with GIZ under the CGIAR Nexus Gains Initiative, this module, this module consists of presentation slides including notes and two interactive sessions that can be integrated in your next WEF Nexus training.
This new module provides information on how most marginalised stakeholders such as women, landless and ethnic minority groups often end up losing out on critical resources. This makes it all the more important to address these challenges in an integrated and sustainable way, carefully considering aspects of gender equity and social inclusion aspects.
Dive deeper into the key concepts of Water-Energy-Food-Environment Nexus, gender equity and social inclusion, and understand the social dimensions of resource access. Take a closer look at the social equity framework to understand what the key considerations are for integrating gender and social inclusion in WEFE Nexus activities, projects or other interventions.
Keeping all this in mind, an important step can be made in ensuring that a Nexus intervention indeed reduces power imbalances and reverse resource degradation.
Take a look yourself and try to be as interactive, interdisciplinary, multi-level, multi-stakeholder, collaborative and iterative as possible!
