From the Sahel and the Horn of Africa to South-East Asia and Central America, this report shows how factors of marginalization combine to leave women and girls with a disproportionate economic burden; how gendered expectations can lead men and women to resort to violence when traditional livelihoods fail; and how important socio-economic shifts can result from changes to patterns of migration. The report also makes clear that there are important opportunities for action, even as the negative impacts of climate change on security become more visible every day.

Its recommendations provide a clear way forward, encouraging us to recognize the interdependence of peace and security, human rights and development. The recommendations are categorised as:

  • Policy (p. 41);
  • Financing (p. 42);
  • Integrated programme design (p. 43);
  • Research (p. 44).
