Gender and Climate Change in Northwest Ethiopia (GCC-PeVAAP)


Recognizing the impacts of climate change, several adaptation initiatives have been implemented in Ethiopia. However, many of the adaptation strategies tend to neglect the existing gendered differences in perceptions, vulnerabilities and adaptation preferences as well as possible intersections of gender with other variables of influence (i.e. intersectionality). This research project will be conducted in drought prone areas of Northwest Ethiopia, aiming at designing evidence-based gender sensitive agriculture related adaptation strategies. The project will have two components: i) Diagnosis and participatory designing of gender sensitive adaptation strategies; and ii) Documentation and dissemination of the project outputs to local communities, development practitioners, policy makers and scientific community so as to promote uptake the findings for future intervention, the project will contribute to the elaboration of an innovative methodological approach for analysing the gendered climate change adaptation strategies. It shall serve as a platform for institutional collaborations and contribute to build research capacities of the University of Gondar.
