It is now widely accepted that climate change has considerable consequences and creates conflicts between populations in both urban and rural areas. This makes the living conditions of communities, especially those of women and girls, even more difficult in a context where 81% of women are poor in rural areas compared to 69% of men. These conflicts cause security and development problems on an unprecedented scale, particularly for the CAR where the majority of population is female (50.2%) and depends on agriculture (the main source of income for 90% of households in rural areas), fisheries and livestock for the livelihoods of female-headed households. This Outcome aims to respond to the urgent problem of climate change that has long been a cause of conflicts in the Central African Republic with consequences for the resilience of women and girls, since most of them are farmers to see their fields destroyed without a legal response. They do not have control or land rights.
