This paper presents gendered vulnerabilities to climate change at different scales in up, mid and downstream of the Indus basin. Changes in temperature and hydro-meteorological patterns impact farming communities in different ways. Impacts vary from place to place, household to household and for individual members of the household due to a multiplicity of factors including expectation of individual members to take additional responsibilities in difficult times.
