Searching for information on gender and climate change uncovers widespread claims that climate change more adversely affects women than men, despite lack of supporting evidence. The project, “Enhancing Women’s Assets to Manage Risk under Climate Change: Potential for Group-Based Approaches,” aimed to build on the small but growing literature on the linkages between gender, assets, climate change, and collective action in order to provide evidence on how climate change may differentially affect men and women, and on how group-based approaches--which are increasingly used in development projects--can improve resilience to climate change. In order to facilitate continued research in this area, a toolkit compiling all the qualitative and quantitative tools that were developed for the project was created: "Research Guide for Gender-Disaggregated Analysis of Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation."
Section 1 provides an introduction to the research project and answers frequently asked questions regarding research on gender, climate change, assets and collective action. Section 2 provides a brief description of the various qualitative and quantitative tools used in the project with links to relevant briefs and papers that use those tools. Section 3 provides links to other external resources, including other tools and initiatives we think are useful to practitioners and researchers doing work related to gender and climate change.
