Gender inequality is acknowledged as a key driver of vulnerability in the face of climate change. Likewise, full, meaningful and equal participation of women and LGBTI people in all aspects of climate policy and action is vital for achieving long-term climate goals. However, the connections between gender, health and climate change are not yet being made by decision-makers or translated into concrete measures and actions.
Further deliberate, focused effort is needed to strengthen cross-sectoral collaboration and effectively address the intersection of climate justice, health equity, and gender and SOGIESC based inequality.
