Webinar on Gender, Climate Change, and Agriculture

Event Details
Thursday, June 15, 2017 - 9:30am to 11:00am

Agriculture is a key employment sector for women around the world, despite a noted global gender gap in access to resources, participation in decision making, and income. This gap leaves men and women in developing countries with differing vulnerabilities and abilities to adapt to climate change. Closing the gap must include setting research and political agendas that take into account gendered differences, prioritizing the inclusion of women and other marginalized groups in decision-making processes, and take gender into consideration when implementing technologies aimed at increasing agriculture production. 

A 2016 special issue of Gender, Technology and Development examined these and other issues, which is also the focus of this webinar hosted by CGIAR research program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security's Gender and Social Inclusion unit and the CGIAR Collaborative Platform for Gender Research. 

Experts will discuss a range of topics related to agriculture and gender, including:

  • Closing the gender gap in agriculture
  • The interaction of communities and organizations to strengthen adaptive capacity and food security
  • Technology and labor-productivity constraints for smallholder women farmers
  • Gender-sensitive climate change adaptation technologies
