Exploring Gendered Impacts of Climate Change through Feminist Ecological Economics

As the global climate crisis continues to worsen in the coming decades, its impacts will be felt unequally, especially threatening recent improvements in the status and position of women. This presentation will discuss a framework that draws from both feminist thought and ecological economics to consider linkages between environmental, social, and economic systems, especially in a developing country context. Such a framework can provide a starting point to better understand the disproportionate impacts of various aspects of climate change on groups of women, and ways in which climate adaptation policies must be made gender-aware.
