Women-initiated measures to cope with environmental stresses and climate change in South Asia

Published on 28 February 2018

This review gives a number of examples of women-initiated measures to cope with climate change and environmental stresses in South Asia (see Section 3). Many more examples exist and a strong literature base is developing.

However, this is still relatively small and much of the literature lacks clear information and measurements of the impacts of these adaptations and their long-term effects. Many of these impacts are supposed but little empirical evidence was found.
