Gender Sensitivity Could Aid Climate Change Projects

Men and women living in slums face different climate changeimpacts which, if overlooked, could further widen gender gaps in participatory development, says the preliminary findings of a continuing study. The study is identifying factors that influence men and women in participating in climate adaptation and mitigation initiatives. The preliminary results of the study were released last month (19 January) at a workshop organised by Practical Action Consulting East Africa in partnership with Institute of Development Studies, and the Climate and Development Knowledge Network, both based in the United Kingdom.
