New podcast episode: Why are women disproportionately affected by climate change?

Women are more vulnerable to the effects of climate change than men and, at the same time, can be critical agents of adaptation and resilience responses.

In our new podcast episode, we look at the reasons why women are disproportionately affected by climate change, and how investors can benefit from considering both gender and climate factors in their work.

We hear from:
  • Marijn Wiersma, Gender Lead, CDC Group
  • Tejaswini Raval-Kamat, Vice President, ESG-Impact, EverSource Capital
  • Anita Bhatia, Assistant-Secretary-General and Deputy Executive Director, UN Women
We also discuss the Gender Smart Climate Finance Guide, a new free online toolkit from the 2X Collaborative. the Guide provides practical resources for investors applying a gender lens to climate finance investments. It is powered by CDC Group, the European Investment Bank and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.
