Gender and Climate Change: new Climate Visuals gallery
This gallery illustrates how women are often disproportionately affected by climate change due to differing gender roles and existing gender inequalities - but also celebrates women as leaders, innovators and agents of change. It recognises the important role that gender plays in mediating the impacts of climate change, and people’s capacity to respond to it.
Showing through imagery the reality of how women are being affected by climate change, but also how they are responding, is a crucial step in dealing with and addressing the gender inequality that otherwise risks undermining progress at a global level.
It was curated to mark Gender Day at the UN climate change conference in Bonn (COP23), and accompanied by this guest blog on the gender-climate link.
