Easy Digest:
The Links between Climate Change & Gender

Part of our Easy Digest series, we explore various themes and their connections to climate change, with the aim to guide funders towards more impactful resource allocation. This short resource focuses on the links between climate and gender.


  • Climate change affects everyone, but it does impact women and girls in unique ways, which are evident in their health, education and livelihoods.
  • Fostering gender equality has positive outcomes for development and for climate change.
  • Funders can commit resources to fund initiatives that promote gender equality alongside climate impact, as mutually reinforcing objectives.
