This paper presents evidence on rural Ethiopian households’ time allocation to different activities, especially fuel collection work.
This study, published in the International Forestry Review, highlights the complex gender dimensions of climate change adaptation. Included is a study of the evolving vulnerabilities experienced and adaptation practices pursued by local communities in the Lake Faguibine area in Northern Mali, differentiated by gender.
Vulnerability assessments are a vital component of adaptation efforts as vulnerabilities can vary greatly over time and space, and determine what parts of society are most at risk. Adaptation efforts can even create greater vulnerabilities for some groups, particularly women, in the process of assisting others. This report examines these complexities in the shifting vulnerabilities to climate change arising from an evolving social, economic, ecological and political landscape in the Lake Faguibine region of Mali.
