Impact of climate change on agricultural livelihoods of women
Arthan and JustJobs Network organised a forum to discuss climate change through the lens of gender equality Posted on 11 Mar, 2022 06:39 PM

The aim of the forum was to discuss the impact of climate change on agricultural livelihoods of women. The forum threw light on the deep disparities between the work women have access to relative to men and the significant gender gap prevailing amongst agricultural casual workers. Women’s wages are at least 30 percent lower than male wages.
