Project Type: Research

DESCRIPTION: Women and men farmers can be differentially vulnerable to climate related risk due in part to the varied roles and responsibilities that they carry out in their communities and households. While climate services can be critical for enhancing farmers’ adaptive capacities, women and men can face varying opportunities and challenges to access climate services and implement climate information in agricultural decision-making.

To this end, the project focuses on understanding gender differentials in access to and use of climate-related information; and analyzing the factors and conditions that can contribute to climate information services that transform gender inequalities.
