The project, which is implemented by IUCN Regional Office for West Asia (ROWA) and funded by International Center for Agricultural Research in Drylands Area (ICARDA), aiming at integrating women in food production, for their important role in food production.

When we look at the value and practicality of different approaches to climate smart agriculture, it is important to understand the gender aspects of their impact. In West Asia, women are becoming increasingly important within agriculture, including earning incomes as well as providing labor, but the extent to which women participate in, and benefit from, agricultural changes varies from place to place.

The project plans to enhance the local adaptive capacity through better understanding of how climate change affect Bani Hashem area in Jordan and their local livelihoods. It will also investigate, analyze and evaluate the gender impact of climate change on agriculture for Bani Hashem pastoral community.
