"Feminist responses to climate change in Africa"


Online, UK

It is widely acknowledged that African women are hardest hit by climate change and at the frontlines of adaptation and scientists across the continent and beyond are hard at work trying to deliver solutions.

Still, what might other parts of the academy contribute to our understanding of the gendered dimensions of climate change? How might an exploration of African social sciences, and African feminist thought in particular, help us better shape proposed solutions?

After an exploration of the broader themes in the literature, this presentation will share experiences from the design and implementation of the One Planet Fellowship as an example of theory meets praxis in the ongoing efforts to equip African farmers to adapt to a changing climate.
