AlertNet publishes story on Women and Climate Change

Alertnet has just published an article by Katie Murray that was written following an interview with Dr Katharine Vincent. The article, in the Climate Conversations series, entitled “Tune climate policy to women for real change“, highlights the gender differences in climate change impacts and abilities to adapt.  Women tend to rely on natural resources – such as farming, and collecting water and firewood – more than men, which means that climate change affects them more directly. The article highlights the capacity for women to be agents of change, provided they are given a voice in decision-making (both in the household and within government).
