The Kōtui programme is designed to drive systemic change for vulnerable and marginalised women facing climate breakdown and disasters. The projects included in the Kōtui programme aim to improve women’s access to resources and opportunities and make sure that the governance systems that affect them include women and their priorities. 

Kōtui seeks two long-term outcomes: first governance systems affecting resilience are more inclusive, accountable and gender-responsive. Secondly, women have more equitable access
to resources and opportunities that matter to their resilience and wellbeing

This project will drive work on the distribution of land rights information at the community level, alongside broader women’s empowerment work.
