Climate Change is Not Gender-Neutral

Across the globe, women are disproportionately affected by climate change. Women are not well represented in decision-making processes, have restricted economic opportunities, have more limited access to resources, and make up the majority of deaths from water-related disasters (along with children).

Women are taking action and finding solutions to address climate change and build resilient communities around the world. Watch the United Nations Climate Change Secretariat video: Momentum for Change: Women for Results for some inspiration.
