Making Sense of Land Statistics and Gender

Land statistics disaggregated by sex are useful for showcasing the disparities in land rights between women and men. They also

Adaptation Measures in Agricultural Systems

This working paper synthesizes knowledge within CGIAR on adaptation measures in agricultural systems, for the benefit of parties and observers preparing submissions to the UNFCCC SBSTA. Experience from CGIAR and partners indicate that adaptation measures covering policy, technological, financial, institutional, and research interventions are being tested and applied in agricultural systems in low-income and middle-income countries. 

Gender Integration into Climate-smart Agriculture: Tools for Data Collection and Analysis for Policy Research

This paper summarizes methods to analyze gender-differentiated impacts of climate-smart agriculture (CSA) and aims to enhance the understanding of gender-related determinants of outcomes and facilitate the development of effective interventions that improve gender equality.
