Gender inclusion in climate change adaptation

Source(s):  Asian Development Bank Institute (ADBI)

This document asserts that there is an increasing evidence that climate change has an impact on natural disasters, such as flooding, and on agricultural production, both of which have implications for gender issues. It briefly reviews issues related to gender and poverty. Finally, an example of job recovery after a disaster and interview three female agricultural workers in Japan are discussed.

It is stated that in the recovery process after a natural disaster, women are often expected to take care of family members; this can prevent them from returning to their jobs and place them at greater risk of either losing their jobs or being demoted. The results of the interviews demonstrate the recent empowerment of women in agricultural production and that these women have strong adaptive abilities.
