Climate Change and Gender


In comparing its own findings with the Gender Inequality Index published by the United Nations Development Programme, the Monitor discovered a strong correlation between gender inequality, multi-dimensional poverty and vulnerability to climate change. Taken from the Monitor´s 4 in-depth case studies, Denmark, 12th in gender development, registers as low in vulnerability to climate change. The Dominican Republic, 74th in gender development, has a high vulnerability. The Maldives, 77th and Mozambique, 111th in gender development, are both acutely vulnerable to climate change.
