This report provides a first review of the interactions between climate change, gender and health. The effects of climate on human society, and our ability to mitigate and adapt to them, are mediated by social factors, including gender. It documents evidence for gender differences in health risks that are likely to be exacerbated by climate change, and in adaptation and mitigation measures that can help to protect and promote health.
