Building Resilience Capacities of Urban Poor in South Asia
While women are more vulnerable to climate change, they also have the most potential to become agents of change in relation to climate change mitigation and adaptation. As responsible members of families, stewards of household resources, and being the ones that inculcate habits in children, women have the power to change the way we live. Hence women and in particular poor women residing in slum communities are the primary audience for this training. The exercises in this module facilitate the process of understanding these gendered aspects of climate change. The training module is developed keeping in mind the capacities, literacy levels, and familiarity with technology of poor women.
