New Ph.D. opportunity: Gender perceptions of climate change impacts

This Ph.D. project will study gendered perceptions of climate change impacts with a particular focus on marine fisheries and aquaculture in target regions in both developed and developing countries. Data on perception of climate change impacts will be collected at the individual level, with a purposive sample targeting women and men. The PhD student will 1) conduct a literature review on gendered perceptions of climate change impacts; 2) analyze gendered patterns in local perceptions of climate change impacts using the LICCI data set (www.licci.eu); and 3) collect and analyze primary data on climate change impacts, climatology, catch data from industrial and artisanal fishing activities and post-harvest fresh fish processing and distribution in a case study featuring fisheries and aquaculture sector from Liberia (west Africa).
