Background

The agriculture gender gap means men and women have differing abilities to access resources, participate in decision making, and adapt to climate change. Together, the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security’s Gender and Social Inclusion unit and the CGIAR Collaborative Platform for Gender Research hosted the webinar “Gender, Climate Change, and Agriculture.” Experts discussed 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

The webinar was developed based on a 2016 special issue of Gender, Technology and Development. The special issue can be accessed here.
