Climate change is affecting everyone—but not equally. Women, girls, and gender-diverse people are most susceptible to the effects of climate change due to social, political, and economic inequalities that limit their autonomy and access to resources. By revealing these inequalities and pointing toward targeted solutions for climate resilience, gender data can ultimately advance climate justice and accelerate gender equality—but existing high-quality gender-environment data is still limited.

This policy brief, produced in partnership with the Data 2x and International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD), highlights the importance of gender data to climate change adaptation and resilience, and calls on leaders to recognize, advocate for, and use gender data as a tool to advance climate justice and gender equality.
