The GGCA is proud to announce a new research piece, “Gender and Climate Change: A Closer Look at Existing Evidence”. GGCA commissioned this literature review in early 2016 in order to provide the most up-to-date assessment of the current evidence base illustrating how vulnerability to climate change and climate adaptation decisions vary by gender, and the research piece is available here.
In addition, there are factsheets available that accompany the publication and are organized by region and pulled from the Research Piece (see attached).
About this Publication
It is GGCA’s hope that this review provides insights for advocates, policymakers, scholars, and members of the public who seek to understand and address gender-differentiated climate experiences. Although the search was comprehensive, a select number of sources were chosen, providing a diverse array of evidence to support the advocacy and policymaking work of GGCA members. This includes evidence on gendered experiences in different geographic areas, using a variety of research methods, and produced by scholars from the Global South as well as the Global North. Readers are encouraged to use this as a resource for their advocacy, policymaking, and research activities.
