Nordic action on gender and climate
Responsible organisation

Abstract [en]

Women in the rural regions of developing countries suffer most from climate change, due to its impacts on their routine activities such as fetching water and growing crops. Since women are most affected, women need to participate in all climate actions and have access to resources and technologies designed to facilitate adaptation, otherwise gender inequality will worsen.

Meanwhile, choices largely made by women in both rich and poor countries related to feeding their families and running their homes have a considerable impact on global greenhouse gas emissions. Women can therefore play a vital role in mitigating climate change.

The Nordic Countries have actively integrated gender issues into international climate actions and policies and support many initiatives designed to make climate actions more gender-sensitive.
