Description/Abstract: 

International Climate Finance Funds require certain safeguards. For accessing the Green Climate Fund (GCF) Gender Assessments and Action Plans need to be developed, because impacts of climate change affect women and men differently. Women are the hardest hit by dramatic shifts in climatic conditions. Women’s mortality from climate-related disasters is higher than that of men. Compared to men, domestic burdens (e.g. collection of firewood and water) of women increase substantially with various manifestations of climate change.
