Gender-based Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction in Cambodia’s Local Communities
Under Sida’s fund, the
study aims to provide policy inputs into the current gender equality and
climate change responses. To strengthen women’s adaptive capacity and encourage
them to actively participate in decision-making processes into the process of
climate change intervention, the study analyses the root causes of gender-based
vulnerabilities to climate hazards and identifies how local women and men cope
with the stresses. The study selects two case studies of fishery and forestry
communities in Kampot and Preah Vihear provinces. To date, data collection was
complete and analysing data and writing up the report are in progress.
