Factsheet on climate change, health and gender

A publication on the relationship between climate change, health and gender (english and russian).

15.09.2004

As we are dealing with complex ecosystems, of which men and women are just one part, the indirect effects are not easily seen and understood. Even more difficult is the disaggregation by gender aspects. Some women scientists, organisations, institutions and networks have started to dedicate their work to gender questions, strategies and action in Climate Change. Referring to the information on the following pages many gendered questions still have to be put and answered.
