GENDERED IMPACT OF CLIMATE CHANGE



SIMPLIFIER

1. How does climate change affect women differently than men?

Women are 14 times more likely to die in climate-related disasters and represent 80% of those displaced by extreme weather. This is due to pre-existing social and economic disadvantages and their roles in caring for vulnerable groups.

2. What are some specific impacts of climate change on women?

Women face increased risks of gender-based violence during and after disasters, greater health impacts from extreme heat, and higher rates of homelessness due to rising living costs and housing insecurity.

3. How can gender diversity help address climate change?

Gender-diverse leadership results in more effective and equitable climate action policies. Companies with higher gender diversity show better climate governance and sustainability performance.

4. What roles do women play in disaster recovery?

Women often take on emotional and relational roles within communities, sustaining networks of care that help communities stay strong in the face of disasters. Recognizing and supporting this “soft infrastructure” is crucial for disaster resilience.

5. What actions are needed to address the gendered impacts of climate change?

Targeted policy responses are needed to recognize the vulnerabilities of women and gender-diverse people. Increasing gender diversity in leadership positions and supporting community-level care work are essential steps.

6. What initiatives have been announced to support women in climate-related fields?

The recent federal budget includes funding for a Building Women’s Careers Program and increasing diversity in STEM education and industries. These initiatives aim to enhance gender inclusion in climate-related sectors.

7. Why is it important to address gender inequality in climate change policies?

Addressing gender inequality ensures that climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts are inclusive and effective. Women and gender-diverse people bring crucial perspectives and leadership needed for a sustainable future.
