The gender advantage: women on the front line of climate change

Source(s):  International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD)

This publication illustrates IFAD’s experience in closing the gender gap and mobilizing the "gender advantage" in climate change adaptation through ten case studies from across the world. The case studies show that gender-sensitive adaptation results in better livelihood options and incomes, improved yields, more food security and reduced workloads for women and their families. However, there is a growing consensus that climate change can exacerbate existing conflicts and gender inequalities. Therefore, a holistic approach should be adopted to ensure that tackling one problem does not lead to another.
