Gendered Impacts of Weather and Climate: Evidence from Asia, Pacific and Africa

In the last decade, the international discourse regarding the nexus between climate change and gender has evolved. However, the causes and types of gender-differentiated impacts on different groups of women and men as they emerge from their experiences “on the ground” are much less understood.

This research report was commissioned as a response to this precise knowledge gap. It analysed the gendered impacts of weather and climate and the gender-specific needs of climate information and services in Asia, Africa, and Pacific Small Island Developing States, especially as they emerge from disaster risk management and agriculture and food security, two sectors heavily affected by climate change.
