This book addresses the relationship between climate change and gender by asking the question does gender matter in the context of a global climate crisis? Drawing on diverse research across the globe, the book focuses on research, policy and action in an attempt to identify what we already know and what we need to know in order to respond to gendered vulnerabilities in the context of climate change. The book is divided into 5 key sections: Introducing Gender and Climate Change, Questioning Gender and Climate Justice, Interrogating Policy from a Gender Perspective, Action and Strategies to Address Gender and Climate Change, and finally Gender and Climate Change.
