The adverse effects of drought, floods, hurricanes, extreme rainfall events and sea level rise are often felt more keenly by women than men as a result of systemic gender discrimination and societal expectations related to gender roles. This is according to a 2022 UN report on gender and climate change. At the same time, the report highlights that better integration of women and marginalized groups into decision-making at all levels would help to improve both mitigation and adaptation policies.
