"Evaluating the regional impacts of climate change on women's well-being, domestic burdens and food security in Bolivia"
by Escalante, Luis and Helene Maisonnave

Throughout Bolivia, the vulnerability of women and men to the impact of climate change is not equal due to regional and gender related differences and varying levels of exposition to climatic events. This study uses a macro-micro model with a gender focus to assess the impact of climate change on food security and women poverty. We analyse a scenario in which specific regional damage occurs in the agricultural and livestock sector, as well as in the non-agricultural ones, due to adverse climatic events.
The simulation reveals negative impacts on the Bolivian economy, with the agricultural sector being the most affected. Food availability is reduced, which ultimately leads to greater food insecurity and food poverty with female-headed households suffering the most. The results also reveal negative effects on employment and increased domestic burdens, especially among women, which increases their vulnerability with women in the highlands being the most affected.
