Climate change is a historically shifting conversation and the knowledge which is specific to the gendered understanding of the climate change hotspot study sites of South Asia. This chapter explores how vulnerabilities are gendered, and agency is constructed, despite the existence of social and political barriers across the states of South Asia. Tracing common gendered trends across countries and gendered strategies adopted across borders has provided critical knowledge of gendered transformation at the community level. Climate change linked to a new transformative agenda grounded in gendered concepts of equality requires research at each stage of systems change. The epistemological position of women in climate change research needs to be based on women’s lived experiences. For the future, studies must address the lack of a robust methodology to address gender inequalities from a multi-disciplinary perspective in a context of climate change.
