Climate Risk and Gender Workshop in Montenegro

In the framework of the Global Environment Facility’s MedProgramme Child Project 2.1 two UNEP/MAP Regional Activity Centers (PAP/RAC and Plan Bleu) organised a joint workshop to support the development of a Coastal Management Plan (CMP) for Kotor Bay, Montenegro. The CMP’s elaboration is led by PAP/RAC and informed by Plan Bleu/RAC’s participatory method Climagine.

This third workshop proposed and reviewed a set of Sustainability Indicators for each priority sector identified in the CMP in the first meetings, as a means of monitoring progress towards the objectives of the CMP over the coming years. The first day of this workshop built on the outcomes of the two previous Climagine CMP/Climagine in Boka Kotorska, which took place in December 2021, Tivat and in July 2022, Kotor.

The second day consisted of a half-day workshop organized by Plan Bleu in the framework of the MedProgramme. It presented the main conclusions of the “Gender-sensitive Climate Risk Assessment of Boka Kotorska” and built the capacity of stakeholders to better understand the links between climate risks, impacts and gender in the area, with a view to understanding how climate risks affect the priority sectors of the CMP.

This event brought together 24 participants on the first day and 19 participants on the second day.
