Strengthening gender equality and resilience through innovative climate-risk finance
As the ASEAN region experiences more heat waves, droughts, storms and rising sea levels, women are impacted most. This is because women are typically in charge of feeding their family, have less control over land and property, and less access to credit, insurance, information, and government support. Women in agriculture are paid less than men, have less access to education, and are more likely to live in poverty. Pressures on women intensify during climate-related disasters when it becomes harder to care for their family and cases of domestic violence increase. All this makes it more difficult for women to adapt their farming practices, manage the impacts of climate change, and invest in their futures.
GIZ Thailand has published a brochure discussing the barriers in gender inequality when it comes to access to information, education, resources, rights, and decision-making, and offers recommendations on how to overcome them.
