Case Studies

The following 12 chapters here are drawn from two issues of the journal Gender and Development. The chapters cover a wide spectrum of climate change-related topics: gendered vulnerability; disaster-preparedness and adaptation; mitigation initiatives; and finally, advocacy aimed at influencing climate policies. These differences in contexts, topics, and themes are overlaid by distinct conceptual approaches and strategies. The authors are drawn from a variety of NGOs, academic institutions, and official development aid organizations, but they all derive their analyses from experience, sometimes presented here in the form of case studies. Several of the papers will be of particular interest to GAD practitioners and staff of development organizations wondering how to address gender and climate change in development programs and projects on the ground.
