The purpose of this training guide is to promote the use of participatory approaches in carrying out gender-responsive and socially-sensitive climate change research and development in the agriculture and food security sectors. The guide focuses on research at the household and community level. It provides users with resources, a conceptual framework of gender analysis in the agriculture and food security sectors and tools for collecting, analysing and sharing gender-sensitive information about agricultural communities, households and individual household members who are dealing with climatic changes. The training guide looks at the kinds of institutional arrangements and action research approaches that can help ensure a more equitable access to the benefits derived from interventions that enhance resilience in the face of a changing climate.
