The project aims to transform gender and age group relations in Senegal in order to improve the status of women, young women and young men, as well as their influence and decision making power within their households, communities and farming organizations. It aims to increase access to economic opportunities that are adapted to climate change in irrigated crop sectors. The project also aims to increase the ability of women and young adults to control agricultural resources. It facilitates cooperation among stakeholders of integrated management processes for water resources through irrigated crops adapted to climate change. Project activities include: 1) developing training modules for emerging women and youth leaders on rights, leadership, and gender and intergenerational issues; 2) analyzing markets in target sectors to identify cost-effective and innovative opportunities based on adaptation priorities; and 3) identifying common adaptation strategies for climate variability and the resources available to address climate risks.
