Participatory gender-sensitive approaches for addressing key climate change-related research issues.
Evidence from Bangladesh, Ghana and Uganda
The researchers investigated if and how farming practices are being modified to deal with a changing environment, and the constraints and opportunities these changes pose for both men and women. The field research covered three main research priorities for the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Climate Change (CCAFS), relating to the climate change, agricultural development and food security ‘nexus’:
• How to enable farmers, both men and women, to visit farms of the future, i.e. visit climate analogue sites;
• How to ensure equality in access and usage of seasonal weather forecasts;
• Get a better understanding of gender-sensitive climate-smart agricultural practices and what catalyzes implementation of CSA practices.
