This analytical document is part of the Advantage Series and includes the analysis of 10 case studies: Plurinational State of Bolivia, Mali, Bangladesh, Mauritania, Nigeria, Kyrgyzstan, Swaziland, India, China and Peru. This publication illustrates IFAD’s experience in closing the gender gap and mobilizing the ‘gender advantage’ in climate change adaptation through ten case studies from across the world. The case studies show that gender-sensitive adaptation results in better livelihood options and incomes, improved yields, more food security and reduced workloads for women and their families.
