Women and Gender Inclusion

Women, particularly poor women and their families, are disproportionately impacted by climate change. Impacts such as high water scarcity and rising sea levels undermine daily livelihoods and food security for women all across the Pacific. While women are central to the impacts of climate change, they are also critical to envisioning peacebuilding solutions. Women are uniquely positioned to resolve conflicts and build social cohesion to ultimately forge a collective response to the ever-more dangerous slow and sudden impacts of climate change.. The dual perspective women have to be both at the forefront of climate change movements and climate change impacts will be critically important to building our work at the intersection of climate and peace.
