Policy Group's New Briefing Document: Gender Dimension of Water and Climate Change
08/05/17 Filed in: Policy Brief
The AGWA policy group, coordinated by SIWI, has released a new policy brief
outlining the gender dimension of water and climate change.
The latest policy brief from AGWA's Policy Group focuses on the importance of coherence between gender-responsive climate policies and the balanced participation of women and men in climate policy dialogue. Women are often made more vulnerable from the adverse impacts of climate change, especially in developing countries. At the same time, women also play a crucial role as change agents for successful adaptation to climate change.
This policy brief, prepared by SIWI and AGWA, is a contribution to the discussions and activities at UNFCCC meetings in order to improve understanding and application of gender and water knowledge in the climate arena. You can find out more on the AGWA Policy Group by visiting our Policy page
