For CARE, Gender Transformative Adaptation means designing and implementing programs that consider the differential impacts of climate change on women and men. We want to tackle poverty, inequality and food insecurity simultaneously, while continually addressing gender as one defining institution in the context of small-scale agriculture and natural resource management. We do this by collective transformation of fundamental gender-related power relations.
