Policy

"There is now a lot of talk on climate change but agricultural impacts on women following climate change have been ignored. Women do suffer more than men. They do most of the back‎-breaking work. I do support the findings of Alternative Futures' research on this issue. The recommendations are useful and to the point and will benefit developinment of adaptive policies for women. If we talk about inclusiveness, then women need to be given more voice in capacity building, decision-making and ownership of land among other things. I feel more research should be carried out on this issue." (March, 2014).
