Gender, Climate and Security: Sustaining Peace on the Frontlines of Climate Change

Tuesday 9 June, authors of the report presented key findings, including insights from research in urban Pakistan, northern Nigeria, and Freetown, Sierra Leone.

Gender norms and power dynamics shape how women and men of different backgrounds experience or contribute to insecurity in a changing climate. Grounded in a series of case studies from research and programming experience, this report offers a comprehensive framework for understanding how gender, climate and security are inextricably linked. The report assesses entry points for integrated action across existing global agendas and suggests concrete recommendations for how policymakers, development practitioners and donors can advance three inter-related goals: peace and security, climate action and gender equality.

The event mark the launch of the report “Gender, Climate and Security: Sustaining Inclusive Peace on the Frontlines of Climate Change,” a joint initiative of UNEP, UN Women, UNDP and UNDPPA.

Szilvia Csevár, LL.M., Lecturer/Researcher Public International Law contributed to the rapport ‘Gender Climate and Security: Presenting the Evidence’.
