Gender equality and development

Environment, climate change and agriculture


The practice notes in this section focus on environmental issues. They provide an understanding of how women’s access to and use of natural resources such as water is different from that of men’s. The practice notes also address how women and men are affected differently by environmental degradation and climate change. As agricultural smallholders and farm workers, women play a crucial role as farmers and producers of food in most developing countries.
