The climate crisis is not “gender neutral”. Women and girls experience the greatest impacts of climate change, which amplifies existing gender inequalities and poses unique threats to their livelihoods, health, and safety. Across the world, women depend more on, yet have less access to, natural resources. In many regions, women bear a disproportionate responsibility for securing food, water, and fuel.
Our May event will discuss how Climate Change impacts women and girls. How does the climate crisis affect access to essential resources like food, healthcare, housing, and education? We have already seen how natural disasters like hurricanes, earthquakes, and flooding worsen gender inequality. How can we limit the impact of Climate Change and ensure a better future where women and girls have better outcomes in natural disasters and an energy crisis?
