Exploring Gender Differences in Household Food Security and Implications for Climate Change Adaptation in East Africa

Abstract

Poster summarizes a study by Silvestri et al., into the differences between households performing well and poorly under the impacts of climate change, in three sites in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. The study finds that the major difference can be found between female versus male-headed households, the former being less food secure than the latter. Presented at \"Tropentag 2014 Conference on Bridging the Gap Between Increasing Knowledge and Decreasing Resources\", Prague, Czech Republic, September 17-19 2014.
