"The complex and dynamic relationships among climate change, agriculture and food security and how they affect men and women differently are not well understood. Due to scarce gender-disaggregated data, there has been limited research on how men and women adapt to climate variability and change to maintain food security in agricultural systems, as well as the incentives, constraints and opportunities women farmers have to pursue farming practices that reduces emission of GHGs. How climate risk affects the livelihoods of men and women, and the type of climate information that will assist both men and women in making ‘climate smart decisions’ are also areas of research that have not received enough attention. Therefore, CCAFS is searching for scientists who are interested in conducting research on gender issues related to the climate change, agriculture, and food security nexus.
CCAFS will award women scientists enrolled in a PhD program or interested in a post doctoral opportunity, and who are citizens of and affiliated with an institution in Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Mali, Niger, Senegal, Bangladesh, India, or Nepal to a research grant of $35,000."
