Gender: the missing component of the response to climate change

Source(s):  Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations - Headquarters (FAO)

This report analyzes the gender dimension of climate change and the policies enacted to mitigate and adapt to its impacts with the aim of developing gender sensitive approaches with regard to mitigation measures, adaptation projects and national regimes. According to the report, natural disasters and environmental damage associated with climate change are worse for vulnerable populations, including women and children. They depend largely on the environment for their livelihoods and have less access to natural and economic resources for recovery. However, the research found that gender aspects have generally been neglected in international climate policy.
