Recognising that climate change affects men and women differently is key in this report, bringing together a collection of thematic notes, guidance and tools.

Women are key players in the agricultural sector, yet compared to men, they own fewer assets and have access to less land, fewer inputs, and fewer financial and extension services.
The profiles are aimed at inspiring technical experts about possibilities that they can explore and adopt in project design in a wide range of applied climate related topics.
