Interrogating the Links Between Climate and Gender-Based Violence

November 29, 2023



Even though climate change affects every region of the world and every facet of our lives—health, economic, and social—its impacts have been disproportionately more significant on women and girls in developing countries, where adaptive capacity is more limited. One domain where the impact on women and girls has been particularly egregious is safety and security. Due to their traditional role as caregivers and traditional responsibilities—which include food preparation and the collection of water and fuel supplies (all of which are impacted by climate change)— and their limited access to resources, their vulnerability to different forms of gender-based violence has been significantly heightened by the climate crisis.

To observe the 16 days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence and as a prelude to COP28, Abt Associates is convening a virtual panel discussion to explore the intersections between climate change and gender-based violence and what approaches various stakeholders can take to ensure that GBV is integrated into research, resources, and programming.
