Training Guide: Gender and Climate Change Research in Agriculture and Food Security for Development

This training guide provides users with resources and tools for collecting, analyzing and sharing gender-sensitive information about agricultural communities, households and individual household members who are facing climatic changes. Part I provides an overview of the importance of understanding climate change and food security issues in a gender-sensitive manner, and offers 10 possible participatory research tools. Part II provides step-by-step guidelines on implementing research activities, including how to use a sampling strategy, and instructions on how you can record and analyze findings. It also addresses three particular research topics that are priorities of the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS): climate analogues, weather information and climate-smart agriculture. The guide is intended for agricultural development professionals who are using field-based research in their work with households and communities to respond to the impacts of climate change, prepare for future climate risks and impacts of climate change or modify agricultural practices to reduce contributions to climate change.
