Gender is an often discussed but neglected perspective in the climate change debate. Migration is one adaptation strategy to climate change, and, like other types of migration, it is a gendered process. These topics interact in highly complex ways, and yet there is little understanding about how they intersect and what impact they have on one another. Only recently have there been efforts to bring experts from these three fields together – and in the process to integrate more diversity, inclusiveness, and gender perspectives into climate mitigation and adaptation approaches. The discussion will highlight the centrality of gender in the climate-conflict-migration nexus and explore strategies that focus on workable and durable solutions.
Join Women In International Security and the Embassy of Liechtenstein, Washington DC, on September 9th at 1 PM (EDT) for a virtual panel discussion focusing on the intersection of these topics and exploring how diversity, equality, inclusiveness, and access (DEIA) can advance our understanding of these complex dynamics in the gender, climate change, and migration nexus.
