Gender and climate change policy after COP21

Posted 2/23/2016

A more food-secure and fair world in sight if the new climate deal truly engages with women farmers. , by Jerome Bassuet and Sophia Huyer

 It’s a hard life for women farmers in developing countries, and mounting temperatures will make it even harder. Gender inequality means that women are more affected by climate change than men.


Gender is not well integrated into climate change policy in relation to agriculture: policy makers need to take into account the differential vulnerabilities of men and women farmers to climate change. The potential of rural women to be important agents of change and innovators can be best tapped into by co-designing climate smart technologies and practices.
