Seminar title: "Gender, Shocks, and Assets: Sources of Resilience"
Rural housholds face multiple sources of shocks, which are exacerbated by climate change. But household members do not all experience these shocks in the same way. Using the Geners, Agriculture and Assets Project (GAAP) conceptual framework and evidence from a range of studies in South Asia and East Africa, this presentation will examine the role of different types of assets in providing resilience for women and men.
