Gender, Environment and Climate Change

Authors/editor(s): Korotenko V.A., Kirilenko A.V., Prigoda N.P.

Climate change is increasingly viewed as a global development problem, rather than an environmental one. It is important to understand how climate change's effects will vary for women and men as climate change risks threaten to increase gender inequality and may even undermine the current progress made in achieving gender equality in many developing countries. 

Using photos by Eric Gourlan and the “BIOM” Ecological Movement, Gender, Environment and Climate Change examines how climate change is affecting gender relations in the Kyrgyz Republic, particularly for rural women and female-headed households., and provides gender and climate risk policy recommendations.
