I found this report on adaptation in the Arab region. It my be interesting to those working in other regions.
One chapter of the report "Adaptation to a Changing Climate in the Arab Countries. A Case for Adaptation Governance and Leadership in Building Climate Resilience", edited by Dorte Verner and published by the World Bank addresses the need to develop gender-responsive adaptation policies and provides case studies from four Arab countries (Yemen, Morocco, Syria and Jordan).
The whole report can be found here: http://www.zaragoza.es/ciudad/medioambiente/onu/en/detallePer_Onu?id=521
