Abstract
  • Over 11 % of total population engaged in fisheries and aquaculture and out of them about 10% is women in Bangladesh (DOF, 2013). Thus, women make essential contributions to local food security and in many cases; they take part in the commercially fishing production and trading too. There are pervasive gender gaps in the fisheries sectors; including women limited access to resources such as technology and information. On the other hand, smallholder women farmers including women headed households are especially exposed to climate change too. The research in south west coastal areas of Bangladesh identified the needs, requirements, potential and constraints faced by women in the access to and use of technologies and technical measures for better production and income. Some participatory tools were used for data collection, such as Focus Group Discussion (FGD) with farmers Groups, Key informant interviews with Fisheries Extension Officers, Lead Farmers and Inquiries - method with individual women farmers etc.  The field findings were mixed—some women farmers gained a lot using fisheries technology while some felt uncomfortable, costly and unable to use which reduced their production, thus the income. Finally, the report on the study suggests increasing availability and use of gender friendly and climate resilient agriculture production and processing tools and techniques for example: the adoption of simple technology on efficient water use can help farmers to protect themselves from potential losses, reduce costs and enjoy higher yields, resulting in increased income.
