World Bank, the (WB)
The World Bank sees gender analysis as integral to the social analyses that inform our lending. Gender analysis helps find ways to mitigate possible risks that may exacerbate gender inequality, and highlights opportunities to enhance positive outcomes. In the context of climate change, this has three key implications: (i) women are disproportionately vulnerable to the effects of natural disasters and climate change where their rights and socio-economic status are not equal to those of men, (ii) empowerment of women is an important ingredient in building climate resilience, and (iii) low-emissions development pathways can be more effective and more equitable where they are designed using a gender-informed approach.
