This paper presents a case study from the Nanda Devi Biosphere Reserve outlining the implications of climate change for women farmers in the area, as well as highlighting the potential for ecotourism as a key livelihood asset.
It argues that ecotourism could strengthen the adaptive capacity of local communities' in Uttarakhand, India, more broadly.
The paper intentionally employs a categorical focus on women but also addresses issues of inter-group and gender diversity. Suggestions for related research are proposed for consideration by climate scientists and social systems and/or policy modellers seeking to support gender justice through socially transformative perspectives and frameworks.
