Climate Change, Gender Differences, Resilience, Local communities, Vulnerable, Iran.



Farmers throughout Iran are facing the more and tougher task of adapting to the consequences of climate change that embrace warming temperatures, exaggerated precipitation and storms, and new pest and illness challenges. Farmers should adapt their farming practices so as to become more resilient. Resilience is the ability of a person or system to absorb change whereas still maintaining basic structure and performance. Many organizations operating to extend resilience to climate change with local communities additionally acknowledge the importance of gender, however, the degree to that gender is really integrated with climate change projects is unclear. In the meantime, women are more vulnerable than men to counter climate change, and there has been no research on the extent to which women are resilience facing climate change. Also, male and female adaptation measures against climate change have not been compared. That is one of the most important researches for future policy-making and planning.
