Weather variability and extreme shocks in Africa: are female or male farmers more affected?

African agriculture is extremely sensitive to weather variability and extreme weather shocks. Understanding how weather events affect the intensity of participation in agricultural employment, including from a gender perspective, remains an unanswered empirical question. To this end, the ultimate objective of this study is to empirically quantify how women and men differentially adapt their intensity of participation in agricultural employment under weather variability and extreme climatic events.
