A guidebook of gender-sensitive approaches to climate change policy for city planning. It discusses the different ways in which women and men are affected by climate change. This guidebook includes discussions on gender inequalities such as gender division of labour, gender differentials in income, gender biases in decision making, and other factors contributing to climate vulnerability.
Students will understand how climate change impacts genders differently. They will also learn the importance of gender sensitivity in formulating climate change policies. Students will be introduced to gender sensitive climate adaptation, mitigation and resilience in cities.
Use this tool to help your students find answers to:
- How does climate change affect genders differently?
- Give a few reasons why climate change policies should use a gender-sensitive approach
- What are the priorities for gender-sensitive climate policies at urban levels?
