Women and girls are disproportionately affected by the impacts of climate change. In many developing contexts, women’s livelihoods are dependent on climate-sensitive sectors such as subsistence agriculture, forestry and water. Women and girls also typically have less capacity and resources than men and boys to prepare for and adapt to climate change. For example, restrictions on women’s land ownership mean that many women do not have access to productive land to farm, while a lack of financial capital and access to technologies means they cannot easily diversify their livelihoods.

At the same time, women and girls who experience the consequences of climate change are often leaders in developing effective coping strategies and building resilience. Women  have important insights to contribute to designing and implementing effective climate responses and should be fully included in decision-making relating to climate change at all levels.

Making Climate Finance Work For Women & Non State Actors is a talk inspired by the 23rd Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP23) recommendations for the development and inclusion of gender. We will provide an overview of how the Nigerian government is contributing towards climate financing. Speakers will explore the recent green bond launched by the Federal Ministry of Environment and how integrating gender equality into NDC implementation can effect climate change.
