Bangladesh_photoWatch this discussion forum on "Gender and resilience across the landscape – from Latin America, Africa and Asia" which took place on December 6, 2014, the first day of the Global Landscapes Forum, in Lima, Peru, during COP20. Gender concerns are gaining increasing recognition in climate change negotiations. Although women are believed to be more vulnerable to climate change, data on this issue are scarce. Drawing on research on resilience of men and women in four different landscapes (the Peruvian and Bolivian Altiplano; the Ethiopian Highlands; the Kenyan ASALs; and Bangladesh’s lowlands), watch this discussion on the disparities in men’s and women’s access to and control over key assets needed to cope with climatic shocks and adapt to long-term change.
