The panel discussion engaged with gender experts in Bangladesh, Nepal, and Pakistan who emphasized that when there’s better access to gender-related information in connection to climate change, governments can work towards building capacity and integrating a gender lens into policies, plans, and investments.
Governments are urged to examine the impacts of climate change through a gender lens to address key barriers to gender-responsive climate actions and increase the roles that women play in decision-making to close such vulnerability gaps.
A policy brief based on the key findings is available here.
