Abstract:

In every society, women and men have distinct responsibilities, knowledge and needs which are essential to addressing the effects of climate change. Climate change magnifies existing inequalities and gender inequality is among the most pervasive.ii Women'€™s historic disadvantages €”their restricted access to resources and information and their limited power in decision-making €”make them most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.
