Nepal is among the world’s most climate-vulnerable countries, and the drain of male labor to India means the burden of dealing with climate change often falls on female farmers. Extreme weather results in water shortage, poor quality of soil, and crop disease, and the country is still suffering from acute food insecurity from the drought in 2008. Community organizations are training women farmers to collect and preserve local seed varieties and sell them to other female farmers at subsidized rates. Women are now taking over the project and training community members in climate adaptation. Photo credit: Inter Press Service News Agency
