ABSTRACT

This chapter develops an analysis of the relationship between climate change, human security and gender issues. It describes how climate change and human security are inter-related. It will then focus on gender implications, examining the gender aspects of (natural) disasters and the impacts of climate change on human security, particularly on women's vulnerability. Furthermore, this chapter explores the role that many women play in strengthening human security when climatic changes occur. Based on these explorations, an analytical framework on gender, climate change and human security is presented and discussed at the end of this chapter.
