The Government of Peru developed a gender and climate change action plan in 2014. The implementation of the plan aims to simultaneously reduce gender inequality while adapting to climate change, including by gathering and using more data on women migrants in the country. It has formed consultative processes with various women's organisations and created a mandate for integration of gender into climate change policies. Part of the program involves implementation of training and tools to incorporate gender-responsive data production and analysis.
