Gender Dimension of Climate Change Research in Agriculture: Case Studies in Southeast Asia

This book discusses the gender dimension of the relationship between agriculture and climate change. It explores whether men and women farmers in SEA experience similar or different vulnerabilities and the coping mechanisms or adaptation measures they use in response to climate change risks. It identifies gender gaps in access to and control of resources, information, services, technologies, training, finance, etc., which constrain men and women to adopt CSA and practices, and presents examples of participatory action research (PAR) that incorporates a gender dimension.
