    The increasing agricultural wages in rural India have lent significant R&D and policy support for laborsaving agricultural technologies. While some are heralded as ‘game changers’ in achieving food sufficiency goals, less research is devoted to understanding whether farmer adoption of these technologies worsens economic inequalities. We hypothesize that the rapid diffusion of laborsaving agricultural technologies could result in a reduction in employment and loss of a key source of livelihood for the nonfarming rural poor, especially women from socially marginalized groups.

    Consumption of diverse diets has been associated with improved maternal health and child growth. Diverse diets are a proxy for micronutrient adequacy. The nutritional effects of women’s empowerment on women and children are understudied, especially in urban locations. Hence, this study has been conducted on the status of maternal and child nutrition, understanding how it relates to various dimensions of women’s empowerment in urban settings.

    Women in climate-vulnerable and agriculturedependent hotspots, like the Savanna and Upper West regions in northwestern Ghana, experience diverse impacts of climate variability and change, pressures on the natural resource base, and rapid socioeconomic changes. Women’s empowerment influences their ability to build resilience against the impacts of climate change and societal transformations to sustain their agrarian livelihoods. Yet, gendered transformations are not given much attention in policymaking and climateresilience programming.

    Strong evidence exists that women farmers have less access to land, inputs, labor, and information compared to men. Over the discourse of empirical research conducted in the domain of agricultural productivity, agricultural economists have always pondered over the inclusion of gender diversity as a separate dimension to identify the efficacy of gender roles in agricultural decision-making.

    Gender disparities persist in farm households in the climate-vulnerable coastal Bangladesh. Keeping this view in mind, this study explored the intrahousehold gendered dimensions in some coastal polders of southwest Bangladesh. A stratified random sampling method was employed to select 350 farm households from the polder 30 under Khulna district. Different quantitative descriptive and statistical techniques have been followed here.

    Climate change poses a profound threat to the wellbeing and sustainability of farming and farm-based livelihoods in fragile socioecological systems. Climatic challenges to farming have often been addressed by diverse forms of sustainable intensification that aim to maximize farm outputs and resource-use efficiency through climate-smart innovations. However, climate change poses specific challenges to women farmers, who play important roles in agri-food systems, often in the absence of their male counterparts who recursively migrate from the climatically challenged regions.

    The Indian agricultural system is undergoing rapid degradation because of climate-induced shocks and stressors. As a result, there have been endeavors among governments, civil society organizations and researchers to embrace transformative approaches toward the agri-food system. Within this context, agroecology has emerged as a comprehensive methodology that aims to reshape food systems by harnessing the interconnectedness between indigenous knowledge, local conservation practices, social capital and strategies for adapting to the climate crisis.

    Land ownership has long been argued to enhance farm productivity by improving tenure security. But does this hold for both female and male owners? Few studies have empirically examined the relationship between gender, landownership, and productivity globally, and even fewer have done so for Asia. Gender differences in the likelihood of landowners self-cultivating as opposed to leasing out their land are even less explored.
