Research Guide for Gender-Disaggregated Analysis of Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation
This toolkit provides a compilation of tools developed for and used in the research project titled “Enhancing Women’s Assets to Manage Risk under Climate Change: Potential for Group-Based Approaches,” (2011-2014) Section 1 introduces 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, including Focus Group Discussions, Key Informant Interviews, Net-Maps, and Knowledge, Attitude, and Practices (KAP) surveys, with links to relevant briefs and papers that use those tools. This toolkit highlights the tools and techniques that were used in this research project and is therefore not meant to be an exhaustive list of information and tools related to gender, climate change, and collective action. Section 3 provides links to other external resources, including other tools and initiatives that are useful to practitioners and researchers doing work related to gender and climate change, including econometric analyses and experimental methods.
It is primarily aimed at researchers interested in the topic of gender and climate change, however, the studies summarized also provide insights for practitioners implementing gender and climate change projects.
