Climate Change and Gender Justice: A Participatory Research Study on the Impact of Climate Change on Women in Three Selected Rural Communities in the Philippines


The Philippines is one country highly vulnerable to climate change. It is ranked highest in the world in terms of vulnerability to tropical cyclone disturbances with an average of 20 typhoons traversing the country every year. It ranks sixth among countries considered as “extremely at risk” to disasters induced by climate change. This study, conducted by Philippines-based organization AMIHAN (National Federation of Peasant Women), is part of the five-country participatory research project of the Asia Pacific Forum on Women, Law and Development (APWLD) that focuses on the impact of climate change on rural women.
