Building Community and Ecosystem Resilience through Gender-Focused, Nature-Based Solutions

Micronesia Conservation Trust (MCT), The Nature Conservancy (TNC), and Rare are jointly implementing the project, Building Community and Ecosystem Resilience through Gender-focused, Nature-based Solutions. The project is a continuation of a pilot project from TNC that offered a series of workshops on Nature-based Solutions (NbS) and successfully supported 10 women’s groups in Yap in developing community-based climate change adaptation plans for their respective communities and implementing one NbS action in each community. This project will expand this effort to Chuuk and Pohnpei while deepening capacity in Yap and aims to improve community and ecosystem resilience through an integrated, gender-sensitive approach to land and fisheries management through nature-based solutions to climate change.
