International norms and policies specifically related to gender and climate change have been slow to emerge. However they are increasingly surfacing, carving out space in the nexus between two more long-standing regimes – the environmental regime and the human rights regime. Principles expressed in the international agreements of these two arenas currently provide the foundation, and in some cases specific language, from which principles and policies have been drawn to address the gender dimensions of climate change. This chapter will examine this pattern of norm-setting on the issue in the international arena, attempting to take a snapshot of its current status amid the ongoing climate change negotiations and persistent issue of gender inequality, both of which may define this century's international development agenda.
