    What are the gendered impacts of climate change at household level in Sub Saharan Africa? How can the capacity of women and men be strengthened to better adapt to climate change and climate variability?

  • Where Energy is Women's Business - National Reports from Botswana, Lesotho and Swaziland

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    Women are generally excluded from discussions about energy plans and policies because of gender norms around appropriate roles for women and men, gender biases in education, and gender inequalities in employment status. Yet burning wood or other biomass fuels (such as fuelwood and animal dung) is a primary source of energy in many countries, and fetching and using these fuels is commonly viewed as women's work.

  • Trade Editorial

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    This issue of Oxfam's journal Gender and Development looks at two key linkages between gender and trade. Firstly it explores how international trade relies on an unequal division of labour between women and men, and secondly, how trade agreements have impacts on gender equality within national contexts. The implications for human development of a trading system which prioritises exports over food security and sustainability are that some groups in developing countries - women and the poor - bear the brunt of the costs of trade liberalisation.
