This paper synthesizes four case studies from Uganda, Myanmar, Sudan/Chad, and Burkina Faso, documenting strategies towards building gender equality through resilience projects. The purpose is to document how gender inequalities manifest themselves in all four locations; how gender is conceptualised in theories of change (ToCs); the operationalisation of objectives to tackle gender inequalities; internal and external obstacles to the implementation of gender-sensitive activities; and drivers that help NGOs transform gender relations and build resilience. The case studies describe how disasters and climate change affect gender groups and underscore the patriarchal social norms that disproportionately restrict women and girls’ equal access to rights and resources. This paper aims to demonstrate how to draw on promising practices to make resilience projects inclusive and equitable. It also recommends areas where further research could increase understanding of resilience to climate extremes and longer-term changes, and suggests how donors and funding can best support efforts to build communities’ resilience.

    Burkina Faso’s National Plan for Accelerating Family Planning 2017–2020 is a strategic costed implementation plan developed with technical support from HP+ with a clear vision, strategic objectives, and plan to achieve national family planning goals. The Ministry of Health, with support of technical and financial partners, developed this roadmap to accelerate efforts around family planning and increase the modern contraceptive prevalence rate to 32 percent by 2020. This plan is intended to contribute to a decline in population growth, improvement of maternal and child health, and economic and social development of the country. It is also a tool for resource mobilization and monitoring and evaluation of the activities proposed.
