Indigenous perspectives on gender, power and climate-related displacement

Indigenous Peoples in the Greater Mekong sub region of Southeast Asia are facing threats to their livelihoods and traditional ways of life, and are being forced to migrate as an adaptation strategy. Within these communities, women bear the brunt of the work to adapt as they, culturally, are responsible for the food supply and livestock care.

In this context, the Climate Smart Women initiative undertook village level field research in selected Indigenous communities in Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam to understand the gendered impacts of climate change.
