This site was developed to showcase an IFPRI project, “Enhancing Women's Assets to Manage Risk under Climate Change: Potential for Group-Based Approaches,” which was carried out between March 2011 and September 2014. The project was supported by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), Germany and was undertaken as part of the CGIAR Research Program on Policies, Institutions, and Markets (PIM).

Project partners included the Center for Development Research (ZEF) at the University of Bonn, Germany; the Kenya Agricultural Research Institute (KARI) Nairobi, Kenya; Addis Ababa University (AAU) Addis Ababa, Ethiopia; Data Analysis and Technical Assistance (DATA) Ltd Dhaka, Bangladesh; Institute d’Economie Rurale (IER) Bamako,Mali; Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA) Bamako, Mali; and the University of Hohenheim, Stuttgart, Germany.

For more details on the project, see the factsheet: IFPRI_Enhancing Women#27s.

A list of project outputs is available in the toolkit: Research Guide for Gender-Disaggregated Analysis of Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation.

Currently the site serves as a space for highlighting ongoing research, events, tools and other information regarding gender and climate change. This site is being maintained with support from the CGIAR Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS).
