Renegotiating Gender as Farming Families Manage Agricultural and Rural Restructuring in the Mallee

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter explores climate change related farming and structural adjustment through a gender lens. It considers the political and public policy contexts associated with the gendered social impacts of climate change and draws on current research with women and men in the Mallee region of Victoria about the impacts of climate change. The chapter concludes that a gender analysis of farming adjustment policy makes visible the importance of understanding shifting gender relations as women and men manage agricultural and rural restructuring in a context of change that includes climate change.
