Climate change stresses and incidences of unsustainable development projects are much higher in developing countries due
to various factors including gender inequality. It is widely believed and evidenced that major climate change adaptation
strategies depend on availability of information, access to credit, technology and other social services, and these in turn are
predominantly decided by men mainly in developing countries like Ethiopia. This paper, thus, was intended to address the
magnitude of climate change related vulnerability of households caused by gender inequality and factors that adversely affect
sustainability of development projects in the Ethiopian Choke Mountain Ecosystems using established models, namely,
?vulnerability as expected poverty?
respectively. Accordingly, it was found that presence of gender inequality
in major household decisions as well as lack of participation of women in climate change adaptive and mitigation projects result
in a higher vulnerability of households to impacts of climate change. In contrast, perceptions of project coordinators did not
support the idea that gender inequality significantly affects sustainability of development interventions. To create a climate
change resilient economy, we recommend for gender equality to be at the center of all development plans and programs.
