Supporting Women Farmers in a Changing Climate: Five Policy Lessons

Publisher: CGIAR

Recent research presented at a seminar in Paris co-organized by the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS), the International Social Science Council (ISSC) and Future Earth produced five key policy recommendations for supporting women farmers in a changing climate. Key recommendations: 1) new technologies and practices for climate change will be adopted more successfully when they are appropriate to women's interests, resources and demands 2) extension and climate information services need to serve women and men 3) institutions need to take into account women's priorities and support their adaptive capacity 4) women's capacity as farmers and innovators needs to be recognized and supported; and 5) climate policy processes should go beyond numerical representation of women to create active mechanisms to express opinions, take initiatives, and influence decisions
