Women play an important role in climate change adaptation and mitigation given their wide-ranging functions in the agricultural sector and in livestock, fisheries, energy, forestry, water and land management sectors. This brochure provides an overview of the gender-differentiated impacts of climate change, particularly in rural areas. It also points to opportunities for closing the gender gap in agriculture for climate resilience, and features examples of FAO’s gender-responsive programming in the context of climate change. 20 pp.
