Female Climate Expert Mentorship Program: A partnership between the Norwegian Capacity (NORCAP) and UN WFP

Author: Jacqueline Tesha
The Female Climate Accelerator Program funded by the Norwegian Capacity (NORCAP) is a mentorship program which aims to equip female scientists with the needed technical, field, and social skills in the climate services sector to accelerate innovative science-based solutions and enhance the gender role in the development and delivery of climate services. Increasing the number of female climate experts will benefit the communities, including those areas where women have been marginalised and have limited access to climate information, also will contribute to offering new solutions to mitigating the impacts of a changing climate. This factsheet describes this partnership between NORCAP and WFP and the experience of WFP’s first female climate services mentee.
