Climate Change: Gender Action Plan

December 17, 2021

The adverse effects of a changing climate continue to overly burden the poorest and the most vulnerable, especially poor women. Despite growing recognition of the differential vulnerabilities as well as the unique experiences and skills women and men bring to development and environmental sustainability efforts, women still have fewer economic, political and legal opportunities. As a result, women are less able to cope with, and are more exposed to, the adverse effects of climate change.

The overall goal of the CCGAP is to facilitate the integration of gender considerations into policies, programmes and strategies related to climate change to provide equal opportunities to both women and men and enable them to have access to, participate in and benefit from climate change initiatives across the NDC priority sectors of the economy.
