Dr Katharine Vincent and Ms Tracy Cull have just returned from India, where they ran a training of trainers (and oversaw a training course run by the trainers) on gender and climate change, in partnership with CCAFS. Potential trainers from India, Sri Lanka and Nepal attended the event, learning content on projected climate change in South Asia, its (gender-differentiated) impacts and adaptation options, as well as techniques to communicate this information to rural women farmers and village leaders. The ultimate aim is to empower women at the grassroots to understand that they are able to make choices that enable adaptation to climate change but require little financial or technological investment. Katharine and Tracy authored a guest blog on the training for the CCAFS website.
