- Women farmers are less able to adapt to climate change than men as they have less access to information, technology and decision-making and greater workloads.
- Women need to be supported to adopt climate adaptation and mitigation strategies if we are to meet the 2°C target for warming set by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
- Gender equality and resilience for all can be achieved by focusing on four dimensions: increasing women’s decision-making ability, reducing their work burdens, increasing their access to resources, and supporting their collective action.
