Thematic Area: Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment, Economic empowerment, Climate Change Adaptation
Geographic Area: Bangladesh


Women and men have different vulnerability and capacity to adapt to climate impacts due to differing roles, opportunities, and access to resources. Therefore, examining gender is important because women and men, while hardly homogenous groupings, tend to have systematically being marginalized due to climatic impacts at the very ground level. They are hindered by discriminatory social practices, diverse work responsibilities that may augment their exposure to climate hazards, and less access or rights to financial and productive resources, information and services that may help them cope with impacts.
