Women commonly face higher risks and greater burdens from the impacts of climate change in situations of poverty, and their needs must therefore be addressed to ensure efficient and equitable climate mitigation and adaptation. Including women in climate decision-making allows for more efficient planning as women are best equipped to understand the impact they are experiencing themselves. As technology is not gender neutral, working with climate technologies requires that consideration be taken to ensure that women are included in decision-making processes, use of technologies, and benefit from the outcomes of technologies. Below you will find related publications, partners, CTCN technical assistance, technologies and other information for exploring this topic further.

    Sectors: 
    Approach: 

    Contrary to reports from Burma's ruling military regime on the implementation of the Beijing Platform for Action (BPfA) (the plan to come out of the 1995 United Nations World Conference on Women), women in Myanmar do not enjoy equal rights with men. This paper, which is structured around the BPfA's critical areas of concern, reveals that military expansion and gross mismanagement of the economy have resulted in extreme poverty, systematic abuse of human rights and multiple problems for women and girls, particularly in rural areas and regions populated by ethnic minorities.

  • Raising the bar on Asian women's SRHR in the age of climate change

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Monday 27 August 2018
    Sectors: 
    Approach: 

    The inclusion of women’s SRHR within climate change discourse, policies, strategies, programming, and financing is long overdue. Coherence between the 2030 Agenda and the Paris Agreement is of vital importance. Coherence has been much talked about and documented in negotiations outcome documents and national documents. The talk must now lead to concrete action, particularly to make a difference to women and girls living in the most marginalised and vulnerable communities who bear the double burden of gender inequality and climate change.
