Adaptation to Climate Change

Facilitate participation of women in the planning and carrying out of adaptation measures so that their needs and priorities are taken into account. We need to promote women’s access to adaptation techniques: water and soil conservation techniques, use of improved seeds, diversification of crops, composting and horticulture. Also, we will strengthen women’s groups in rural communities and support their participation in the planning and carrying out of adaptation measures so that their needs and priorities are taken into account.

This includes encouraging active participation of women in community decision making. Also, we will develop and encourage credit and storage systems to support families during the period between harvests so that they do not have to sell their assets to buy food when market prices are higher.
