Drought impacts II: gender/Women

Description & Learning objectives

Drought can have economic, social, and environmental effects on women in developing countries. Unequal power relations, gender inequalities and discrimination mean that women and girls are often hardest hit during a crisis and will take longer to recover. Women and girls experience vulnerability different to men. During times of crisis women`s access to, or control over, critical resources worsens, and can lead to exclusion from claiming basic services and rights. As a result women’s and girl’s vulnerability can increase and under-mine their ability to cope with the impacts of droughts and other disasters.

The webinar explore how women are affected by drought impacts and how they can develop coping strategy to tackle drought.


The webinar will last around one hour.

30 minutes presentation, 30 minutes Q&A.
