Title: Gender and climate change communications practices: Pilot research in two communities in rural Kenya
Chair: Prof Andy Dougill, Professor of Environmental Sustainability, University of Leeds
Overview: This collaboration between UK and Kenyan researchers seeks to use a multi-site, quasi-ethnographic approach to develop nuanced understandings of how the local information ecosystem operates in rural Kenyan communities, and the resultant effects on local women’s ability to combine indigenous and externally-sourced knowledge in their engagement with, and pursuit of, climate change adaptation activities.
