Climate Change & Women

As the majority of the world’s poor, women are disproportionately vulnerable to climate change as it exacerbates poverty and threatens to set back development efforts by decades. Women’s social roles as food providers for their families, managers of household resources and chief caregivers after natural disasters uniquely position them as both victims of climate change and powerful agents of change. Sectors central to climate change mitigation such as agriculture, food security and water management are predominately female. All climate change policymaking, implementation and government accountability must be gender-responsive and include the input of women most directly affected by these efforts.
