Abstract: At a LCC CRSP 2012 workshop in Senegal, workshop participants mentioned the need to know more about the interactions of gender and nutrition within the context of a changing climate. A few of the workshop participants assumed the task of conducting a literature review of the latest research on the subject. Among the findings of the literature review: climate change can have a four-fold impact on nutrition for livestock holders, and nutrition is not free from gender discrimination. Economic opportunities for women are often reduced or threatened when livelihoods shift due to changing environmental and socio-economic pressures.
