Status of Gender, Vulnerabilities and Adaptation to Climate Change in the Hindu Kush Himalaya

The paper looks at a range of materials in order to develop a better understanding of how communities in general and women more particularly impacted, are coping with and adapting to their changing circumstances; the lessons that community-based adaptations from the wider South Asian region offer for helping to mitigate adverse conditions; the state of climate adaptation policies, national and local action plans (NAPAs and LAPAs) of countries of the HKH; and, finally, identifies research gaps in the regional material available on climate change and gender and makes suggestions for future actions.
