Gender and Adaptation to Climate Change: Perspectives from a Pastoral Community in Gujarat, India

In this paper, the authors examine the socially situated perspective of women in the Maldhari pastoral community in Gujarat, Western India. Results show that climate adaptation pathways traditionally utilized by the Maldharis are constrained by the institutional, policy and social context in which the community is placed, with specific impacts on women. This limitation to traditional adaptation pathways in the face of climate vulnerability triggers coping responses for survival, livelihoods and food security, which produce gendered burdens especially in terms of women's work.
