Mainstreaming Gender in Climate Change Adaptation

Climate Adaptation is a process; it requires shifting people’s lifestyle to the changing climate. The basic understanding needed here is that since our society has been hoarding gender inequalities, the hardships brought about by this new challenge called “Climate Change” will hit women of the developing world disproportionately hard and exacerbate the already existing inequalities between the sexes. Hence, in order to reduce the gap and ensure Equity and social justice, it is a must that Gender Mainstreaming be done in Climate Change Adatation.
