Climate Resilient and Empowering Livelihoods for Women

Sheepa Hafiza, Sharmind Neelormi

As part of the flagship project, Reducing Vulnerability of Women Affected by Climate Change through Viable Livelihood Options, UN Women Bangladesh initiated the study to explore potential livelihoods that build resilience and contribute towards women’s empowerment in the areas vulnerable to climate change/variability. This study also explores the opportunities and challenges of pursuing/implementing green jobs contributing towards resilience building of the vulnerable communities where women’s empowerment is embedded as inherent feature. Experiences and evidence from this project suggest that a deeper understanding of how these livelihoods contribute to the increased resilience of women and communities is needed.
