Scaling gender and climate investment opportunities
Women are crucial to respond to climate change. This paper finds that investing in rural women helps achieve climate goals, while simultaneously addressing gender inequality and poverty. Climate-related projects and policies that involve women deliver better environmental outcomes. Funders and investors need to mobilize climate finance while addressing gender gaps and enabling women to access much needed finance to build their resilience and help reduce climate impacts. This can be achieved through women-focused programmes and financial mechanisms. This paper also highlights the lack of quantitative data on the impact of women on climate mitigation and adaptation, limiting investment from the development and financial sectors.
