This paper presents findings of an in-depth gender review of the toolkit and processes utilized by LGUs in the Philippines to conduct CDRAs. 2 It is comprised of a systematic document review of the toolkit available, particularly the CLUP Guidebook: Supplemental Guidelines on Mainstreaming Climate Change and Disaster Risks in the Comprehensive Land Use Plan (hereafter referred to as the CLUP Guidebook – or simply Guidebook), alongside insights from a series of open-ended qualitative interviews with four key informants. We conclude with a series of practical recommendations to GIZ and the Government of the Philippines (GoP) to strengthen gender mainstreaming3 in CDRA planning in the Philippines.
