Climate change is gendered. It affects women, girls and transgender individuals in ways that men, boys or cisgender people don’t experience. For example:

As we continue to witness the increasing impacts of wildfires, flooding, storms and other climate-related natural hazards on communities worldwide, CDP believes that we cannot discuss disasters without looking at climate change. And that conversation cannot happen without an honest and open look at the role of climate change on gender equity.

During this webinar, panelists will discuss how climate change inequitably affects women, girls and trans people. Panelists will share clear examples and promising inclusive practices that lead to positive outcomes for these underserved populations.

At the end of the webinar, grantmakers will:

  1. Understand the intersection between gender and climate change.
  2. Discover why women’s priorities and needs are critical to all phases of disaster- and climate-related risk reduction, mitigation, response and recovery.
  3. Learn about funding opportunities to change the interaction between climate and gender.

While primarily aimed at funders, it may also interest emergency managers, government staff, academics, disaster responders and nongovernmental organization staff interested in or working on disasters and other crises.
