Women are often among the most vulnerable and marginalized, with limited access to resources and assets. They face formidable barriers in adapting to climate change. Their vulnerability stems from a variety of sources, including basic gender inequality, distribution of rural work effort, and disproportionate access to economic, health and educational opportunities.
