Gender equality matters for climate change adaptation and mitigation, and achieving it requires addressing both symptoms and underlying causes. One first step is making sure that women’s roles in climate change mitigation and adaptation become more visible. Other insights and recommendations on how to deal with climate change while increasing equality are available in this newsletter.

Highlights also include summaries of key discussions at the recent Cultivating Equality: Advancing Gender Research in Agriculture and Food Systems conference, in which researchers and practitioners from across the globe came together in a virtual dialogue to discuss how to advance the gender research agenda.

More news, evidence, tools and success stories on gender research from across CGIAR are included for your perusal.
