This report by the Global Gender and Climate Alliance highlights literature that analyzes vulnerability to the impacts of climate change based on gender. Men and women have different experiences in the context of climate change resulting cultural, social, economic and political implication and inequalities. Gender responsive climate policies will reduce vulnerability and improve the adaptation of men and women to the impacts of climate change. There still are, however, many gaps in the gender and climate change literature that needs to be addressed through further research. Photo credit: GGCA
