Gender Related Dimensions of Climate Change and Disaster Risk Reduction

In the aftermath of COP21, a debate on climate-resilient livelihoods and gender inequalities is particularly timely.

Unequal distribution of rights, resources and power constrain many women’s capacities to adapt to climate change and disaster. This public event, co-organized with CARE International, strived to identify next steps towards climate resilience and outline the respective roles of civil society, states and UN human rights mechanisms in moving towards gender sensitive responses to the effects of climate change.
