    “…With almost one in every ten men working abroad, the feminization of agriculture has been an increasing phenomenon for quite some time in Nepal: CBS reported that women involved in agriculture were 36% in 1981, 45% in 1991 and 48.1% in 2001…With climate change already heavily impacting the availability of resources and women having to travel greater distances for resource collection, the added responsibility [of income generation through farming] has made life of such women much more strenuous than it already was…

    “…[An effect] likely to perpetuate the cycle of poverty viciously to subsequent generations is when she, inevitably, decides to keep her children – especially young girls – back from school so that they can help her out instead…One study that focused on disasters in 141 countries concludes that in nations where women lack basic economic and social rights, more women will die from natural disasters than men…Between the farm and household chores, climate change is also responsible for the increase in the amount of time women spend doing unpaid or underpaid work…It is clear that gender focus and considerations are non-negotiable if climate change is to be addressed effectively…” click here for more
