Abstract: It is well-known that women in developing countries tend to be more dependent on natural resources than men, and that female-headed households tend to rely more on agricultural livelihoods than male-headed households. Climate change is projected to impact such livelihoods by altering the availability and distribution of natural resources, reflecting changes in temperature and the quantity and distribution of rainfall.
