It is well documented that climate change exacerbates conditions that drive insecurity and violent conflict, with disproportionate impacts on women and girls. For this reason, climate change is becoming a critical consideration for the field of women, peace and security. To date, the field has largely focused on the gendered impacts and vulnerabilities of the climate crisis and paid less attention to the potential for inclusive climate response to address overlapping forms of insecurity. Climate change is widely understood as a risk multiplier, but this report shows how the meaningful inclusion of women in climate adaptation could be a benefit multiplier by strengthening climate response, gender equality, and security. This report focuses on women’s meaningful participation in local-level climate action within the agriculture and energy sectors, which are two key entry points for climate change adaptation.
