A Free Training Guide: Gender and Climate Change Research in Agriculture and Food Security for Development

This training guide was prepared by Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) to fill that gap by supporting work to investigate the gender dimensions of responding to climate change in the agriculture and food security sectors. The final goals are to improve food production, livelihood security and gender equality in the context of the changing climate.

The purpose of this guide is to promote gender-responsive and socially-sensitive climate change research and development in the agriculture and food security sectors through participatory approaches. The guide focuses on the household and community level. It provides users with resources and tools for collecting, analysing and sharing gender-sensitive information about agricultural communities, households and individual household members who are facing climatic changes.


The objectives of the guide are:

The guide is intended for agricultural development professionals who are using field-based research in their work with households and communities to respond to the impacts of climate  change, prepare for future climate risks and impacts of climate change or modify agricultural practices to reduce contributions to climate change. It is anticipated that users of this guide have a prior knowledge of agriculture and development issues and some experience with PRA, but limited experience incorporating gender issues in the context of climate change into their work.
