Gender and Equity

Gender is a cross-cutting theme, important for each of the main CCAFS research themes and sites. The main objective of the Gender and Equity theme is to have a positive impact on social inclusion for rural poor by providing relevant gender analyses across the program.

It is an important aspect as gender equity gaps, including access to agricultural resources and information, imply that men and women have different vulnerabilities to climate change and different adaptive capacities. Furthermore, climate change has the potential to worsen poverty and to reinforce gender inequalities.
