  6. 6. What do we mean by gender- responsive? LDC Expert Group, 2015 • Gender-responsive refers to identifying, reflecting on and implementing interventions needed to address gender gaps and overcome historical gender biases in policies and interventions. Its use contributes to the advancement of gender equality with an idea to ‘do better’. NAP Technical Guidelines, 2012 • Integrating a gender perspective in NAP process: • Help ensure equal participation of men and women in NAP decision-making processes and implementation of adaptation activities. • Help ensure NAP process and activities do not exacerbate gender inequalities. • Can lead to better adaptation and more resilient communities.
