Hurricane Matthew: Global Affairs Canada recognizes that Hurricane Matthew has had a devastating effect on agricultural production and associated infrastructure in some areas of the targeted regions. Areas that have been severely affected by Hurricane Matthew will require increased support to restore agricultural production capacity and infrastructure to develop sustainable agricultural and agri-food value chains. Applicants working in hurricane-affected areas are encouraged to adapt their proposals to account for the effects of the hurricane on the targeted agriculture and agri-food value chains, including the different impact of this disaster on women and girls. Applicants should also consider that, with climate change, the frequency or intensity of hurricanes may increase. Proposals that take into account specific needs related to the impact of Hurricane Matthew will be given preference. Specifically, priority will be given to proposals that aim to restore, restructure and revitalize agri-food value chains; support value-chain actors, particularly women; and help value-chain actors prepare for future natural disasters.

Gender Equality

Priority will be given to proposals that fully integrate gender equality issues in their design. This means that gender equality issues raised in the analysis are well articulated in the theory of change and are addressed specifically through concrete activities, resources and outcomes. Proposals must also indicate how women and girls have been consulted; how the focus and design of the initiative respond to their comments; and how implementation will support the empowerment of women and girls and advance gender equality.
